Full-text Courier and Herald articles on GBL site

A month or so ago, I discovered that you could get old Chicagoland (Elgin Daily Courier, Herald, Chicago Tribune, Sun Times) newspaper articles on the Gail Borden Public Library site.

It looks like about 10 years worth of articles have been indexed and are available to anyone with a GBL library card. The periodicals librarian didn't know about this database at the time I found it, so my guess is that it's somewhat newly available to us.

Here's the link. And instructions if you need them:
  1. Log in with your library card number
  2. Select View All by Title
  3. Select Chicagoland Newspapers
Have fun.
