How to Choose Your News

New Jersey Newspapers

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: 

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. 

News Databases

These databases provide access to a wide variety of newspaper and magazine publications.
