EWU Databases for Finding Old Magazine Articles

Find Articles from Old Magazines & Newspapers


For many of our magazines & newspapers, we usually only have the last 20-30 years of coverage available online.  Some magazines or newspapers have online archives where you can search for article citations (dates, page numbers, etc.) for free.  But remember that they are businesses who will want to charge you money for access to their periodicals.  So get the citations for articles you want and then search the EWU Catalog to see where we have the print or microfilm copy of the magazine/newspaper (probably in the lower level of the library).  If we own electronic access to a journal in a database, then you'll find a link to that resource in the EWU Library Catalog.  You can then do a keyword search for articles in that database to try to find full text.


Example: New York Times Archive – You can use the NY Times online archive to search for articles from 1851-1980.  Click on the Advanced Search link to the right to limit by date.  You can do keyword searching to find particular articles.  Once you have the citation to find the article, you can go to the JFK Lower Level Periodical Microfilm area and use this call number [AN2 .N4 N47] to find it in the cabinets.  We have from 1857-2008 and you can view the microfilm on readers located on the lower level.
