Why Use This Database?
What is the ProQuest Historical Newspaper database?
The short answer is that it is an index of the New York Times
and Wall Street Journal. That means that each article is
given its own record that database users can search. The New
York Times is indexed from 1851-2001. The Wall Street
Journal is indexed from 1889-1987. For later published
articles, see LexisNexis Academic (New York Times) and ABI/INFORM
Global (Wall Street Journal).
But the database offers more than just indexing. The full-text of
the articles is also included. The text of the articles can also be
searched which makes the database even more powerful.
