Caitlyn Cook and Heather Husted of the New Jersey State Library have compiled a list of historical New Jersey digitized newspapers, that are available either for free or via commercial databases. You can see the guide here: https://libguides.njstatelib.org/digitized-newspapers
The newspapers are arranged by county and there’s also a “Titles Coming Soon” page where they will list digitization projects that are in process so that libraries, historical societies and vendors can avoid unintentional duplication of effort. They also offer a copy of the more detailed spreadsheet that the guide is based upon and a map of newspaper locations for those not well versed in New Jersey geography.
These databases provide access to a wide variety of newspaper and magazine publications.
Media literacy is the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of communication. It's an essential life skill that empowers you to be both a critical thinker and an effective communicator.
