Distributed by ProQuest into library markets worldwide, Library Edition is an extensive database that provides online access to 10,000+ (and growing!) historical newspapers from nearly 60 locations in the US and worldwide.  Numbering over 100 million pages, the World Collection is a prime resource for genealogy and historical content.

Dating from the late 1600s into the 2010s, Library Edition contains full and partial runs of regional, state, and local titles from the United States and other countries.

Invaluable for researchers, historians, genealogists, teachers and students, Library Edition provides greater opportunities for longitudinal and comparative analysis of historical events and people, and is a great source of information for genealogists. With ongoing updates and new content continually being added, there’s always more to be discovered. Features & Benefits
