In cooperation with our colleagues from the FID Geschichtswissenschaft (History), the FID AAC provides access to the archives of two of the most important daily American newspapers: The Washington Post and The New York Times.
The archives offer entire newspaper pages as well as individually indexed materials such as articles, commentaries, opinion pieces, reviews, photographs, comics, and ads. With this access the FID-network expands upon the national license already in effect, which granted access to these newspapers until 1922.
Direct access for users with an FID-account:
The New York Times (1851-2018)
Washington Post (1877-2005)
If you need access, please consult our manual on how to register for the newspaper archives below or visit the KfL-website of the FID Geschichtswissenschaft.
Enjoy browsing the archives! If you would like to make a request for future licensing efforts, fill out this form and let us know.
