Electronic access to many newspapers and periodicals is available through the library’s research databases. These databases can be accessed through our Online Resources page. You may use these databases at the library or at home by signing in with your library barcode number. A good place to start is the Newsbank database, which offers full-text articles from the Chicago Sun-Times going back to 1986 as well as Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report, and many other magazines.
