Crumb Library has several databases that connect you to newspaper resources. Start from the Libraries home page. Choose Select Databases by Subject & Type then select Newspaper Articles from the drop down "Database Types" list. See the end of this section for specific information about the New York Times.
- InfoTrac Newsstand provides access to more than 1,000 major U.S. regional, national and local newspapers as well as leading titles from around the world including full-text.
- New York State newspapers provides indexing to 10 major NYS papers.
- Newspaper Source Plus provides access to more than 1,000 newspapers from around the world including radio and TV transcripts and major wire services.
- Watertown Daily Times (paper of record for the northern New York counties of Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence) from February 1988.
- New York State Historical Newspapers is an ongoing digitization project offering searchable page-image copies of 19th and 20th century local papers throughout the state. You can limit title selection by county.
- New York Times - is indexed in many of sources listed above. We also provide a link to the New York Times website index. You can use their indexes to keyword search recent content (1981 to present) or their archives (1851-1980). You can use the citation information from their index to find the content in our resources. For page image access, we subscribe to the paper -- the recent 3 months are in the newspaper cabinets by the stairs in Crumb-- and we have the paper on microfilm from 1857-2010.
Other databases are listed because they include some newspaper content in their indexing. Lexis-Nexis offers a "Search the News" option that includes indexing of International and wire service content.
We keep 3 months of current issues for the Watertown Daily Times, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal in the Current Periodicals Section on the second floor.
