Magazines, Journals, and Newspapers



Newspaper Collections


National Newspapers

If you need articles from the New York Times or other newspaper websites that want you to pay for articles, don’t. You have access to that content free through this database. Copy and paste the title of the article you want into the search box, and it will usually be there.

Note: Sometimes the article title changes on the New York Times website throughout the day. If your article doesn’t come up, try searching by the author and filtering the results as “Most Recent.” If the content is web-only, it will may appear here, and some publications have a one-day embargo. 

If you have questions, email or stop by the Library.

National Newspapers includes full text (with some exceptions) of hundreds of American and international newspapers, including:



Atlanta Journal Constitution


Boston Globe


Chicago Tribune


Christian Science Monitor


Los Angeles Times


New York Times


USA Today


Wall Street Journal


Washington Post






Custom Newspapers has the Bergen Record, Star Ledger, and many other newspapers around the country, plus full-text newspapers from the United Kingdom.  Note: They are not current with the New York Times and the Record. There is an embargo (waiting period).  This is fine for historical research, but if you need today’s articles from the New York Times, use National Newspapers instead.
