Did You Know?

A Weekly Library Newsletter for Teachers

Vol. 1, Issue 2: April 12, 2021


Unless you are a paid subscriber to the NY Times, the popular news website will only let you view 3 articles per IP address before requiring a login.

Annoying, right?

Good news!

SMUSD staff and students have access to all of the NY Times (1980-present)

through ProQuest Central Student, a free research database

provided by the California State Library's K-12 Online Content Project!
