Paper of Record Subcription

The Library has subscribed to Paper of Record and can access The Temiskaming Speaker digitized edition from 1905-2001. There are also many other newspapers from around the world available. The Library only has one seat at this time, so only one person at a time can be logged in, but there are unlimited downloads for searches. This resource is useful for genealogical and historical research. Our subscription is only available from within the library, but anyone is welcome to use our public access computers any time we are open to access this resource. Please call ahead to book a time for big research projects!
