eResource of the Month for May: Washington Post Archives

Interested in an older article from the Washington Post, but don't want to deal with microfilm or pay for articles older than 14 days on the Washington Post's Web site? Aside from our microfilm holdings, the library also provides free access to electronic archives of the Washington Post via ProQuest Historical Washington Post (covers 1877 - 1991) as well as America's Newspapers from Newsbank (covers 1977 - current). You may also want to check out the ProQuest Historical Washington Post Extra edition, which allows you to bring up the headlines on the date of your choosing (i.e., on your birth date) and is specifically aimed at students.

Remember, to access the electronic version of the Washington Post as well as other newspapers and magazines articles and databases, all you need is your Fauquier County Public Library card.
