Searching the New York Times

The New York Times is a fundamental source for anyone researching American history from the mid-19th century to the present. Several factors support this role:

  • Acknowledged status as one of a handful of "national newspapers"
  • Length of publication - it has been coming out daily since 1851
  • Its ready accessibility through microfilm and online services
  • Beyond the online availability, it has a number of extensive print indexes
