In addition to historical newspaper databases, which are available to members of the Springfield College community, there are a number of online resources that provide access to historical newspaper content.
The Chronicling America project, an ongoing campaign by the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities, aims to create an Internet-based searchable database of U.S. newspapers. Currently, the collection includes numerous newspapers from 1836 to 1922, and is constantly updated. Information can be searched by keyword or browsed by newspaper title or location.
NewspaperCat is a catalog of digital historical newspapers provided by the University of Florida. The collection includes more than 1,000 U.S. titles, as well as some from the Caribbean, and are easy to search by keyword or browse by title or location.
The International Coalition on Newspapers (ICON) is a massive newspaper digitization project. The database includes bibliographic information for more than 25,000 newspapers from around the country and world. Some newspapers require a subscription to access.
