Primary Sources: Online Newspapers

As a rule of thumb, the coverage from online historical newspapers varies widely from complete to non-existent.  If resources for your research question are not available, then we'll go with "Plan B," requesting a microfilm copy through Interlibrary Loan (with thanks to Brian Geiger, UCR, Center for Bibliographic Studies)
