The New York Public Library provides access to over 500 databases with new editions each year. This includes, but is not limited to historical and current newspapers and periodicals, many that are difficult to access elsewhere. Patrons can find primary source materials, scholarly e-books and journals, reference materials, business resources, statistics, maps, digitized rare books and more in multiple languages! This guide focuses on e-resources that were acquired to support the four Research Libraries.
Many of these e-resources are available from home with a valid New York Public Library Card and PIN number. Just look for the blue house.
If you are at a New York Public Library location and using an onsite only database, the majority of these databases are accessible on your own laptop computer, as long as you are at one of our NYPL locations.
New edition to America's Historical Newspapers: The New York Public Library has added to its subscription, Series 15, 1822-1879: Immigrant Communities. "Series 15 contains 160 immigrant papers, many of which are considered the most important 19th-century publications of this genre. Complementing these and providing valuable context are traditional, general-interest newspapers published contemporaneously in those same cities or regions." - Readex.
