Search Newspapers Through the Vineland Public Library Webpage

Vineland Public Library is now making the Daily Journal as well as national newspapers such as the New York Times and the Philadelphia Inquirer available through its website: The library has contracted with ProQuest to allow Vineland Public Library cardholders to search its Newsstand database and print out articles published during the last decade or even earlier. For example, the Daily Journal is available back to August 1999, while the Philadelphia Inquirer goes back to January 1983 and the New York Times to June 1980. The database covers 1309 publications including 941 newspapers and 101 trade journals.
Library patrons can access the Newsstand database from the library or remotely from their home or office computers with Internet access. The database contains national, international and leading regional newspapers that may be of interest, including NJ Business, The Press of Atlantic City, the Courier Post, USA Today, Barron’s, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune and many others.
The Newsstand database can be easily searched to locate specific articles or articles on a given topic. It also includes a special search option for finding obituaries.
Contact the library Information Desk at 856-794-4244 ext. 4243 for further information or help with using the Newsstand database. Library cards can be obtained free of charge at the library’s Front Desk by showing a driver’s license with a Cumberland County address and filling out a short form.

The Vineland Public Library is located at 1058 E. Landis Avenue and is accessible to the disabled. Call 794-4244 to request special accommodations.
