Every issue of each title includes the complete paper, cover-to-cover, with full-page and article images in easily downloadable PDF format. The full content may be searched by individual titles, or users may cross-search all titles. This subscription offers a significant new resource for historical and genealogical research that we are excited to offer our users.

Acton residents have unlimited access to these resources from home, and all library patrons may use the database through computers located in the library.  To log-in, please visit our Databases page, scroll down to the "Newspapers" category, and click on "Proquest Historical Newspapers U.S. Select National Collection."

The service is paid for in part by the Friends of the Acton Libraries. 

If you have any questions regarding this service, please call the Reference Desk at 978-929-6543.
