Our database of the month is New York State Newspapers. It is located under the magazine/newspaper section of the VRC.
This database contains:
"Full-text articles from ten major newspapers published in New York State, including Newsday, New York Times, and the New York Post. These are selections of news, opinion and commentary sections, not every page from every edition"
It's a good place to research information for current events, pro/con research, location information, etc.
