Comments

Does the library offer "Proquest Historical Newspapers Chicago" on the internet? Thank You Roger
The Newberry does have a subscription to the "ProQuest Historical Newspapers: Chicago Tribune (1849-1989)," however our licensing agreement does not allow us to make it accessible outside of the library. We can do limited searching upon request - just submit a note on the Contact a Librarian page with all the pertinent information. http://www.newberry.org/contact-librarian
