  • MapleSoy applied for access to Newspapers.com

    I am active member of WikiProject Women in Red. Access to historical newspapers would greatly help in my efforts to create biographical articles. I am also actively involved in de-orphaning/cleaning up articles, and access to a newspaper archive would help me add references to articles I encounter during this process.

  • Toughpigs applied for access to Edinburgh University Press

    I'm currently writing articles about 1920s silent comedies and lost films; I'm hoping that Edinburgh has some Film Studies books that I can cite.

  • Pokemonprime applied for access to Newspapers.com

    My primary reason for wanting access is because the majority of articles I edit/create (malls and associated retailers) are often hard to find references for outside newspapers. Some newspaper websites have their archives on their own sites, but that is far from universal and sometimes held to strict monthly limits which, while usually able to be bypassed, make things difficult. Currently I'm managing by accessing just the OCR text for newspaper articles on newspapers.com, but that is again clunky and in some cases the OCR fails or otherwise mangles the text. Full access to newspapers.com would also allow me to link to Clippings in my citations, which would be preferable to linking the /newspage/ urls. My other main area of interest, which is editing/expanding National Register of Historic Places stubs, would also benefit from having access, as sources for those topics is usually even more fragmented.
