Library PressDisplay is a subscription database that scans papers from all over the world and presents them in full-color and full-page format. Titles from the United States include the Boston Herald, the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, and the New York Post. International titles include the Jerusalem Post, Metro Hong Kong, Le Monde, Korea Times, and many more.
The keyword search is best used when looking for news that is less than 60 days old, as most papers only go back this far in this database. When searching for news that is older, you could try our New York Times Historical database, or look through our Newspapers research guide for more ideas.
You can find and access Library PressDisplay on our Databases A-Z page, or by searching “Library PressDisplay” from the library home page.

The US Census Bureau has made several data visualizations available on their website. Visitors will be able to quickly scan the page for ready-made visualizations such as Differential City Growth Patterns and Without a High School Education. The Population Bracketology visualization can be used as a game that tests knowledge of population data across the United States. The site may be helpful for teachers looking to engage students in discussions of American history, population movements across time, and statistics on diversity.
You can find this site and many more highlighted on our Resources for Teachers research guide. That guide contains mostly free websites, but also features print books and electronic databases appropriate for Language Arts, History, Mathematics, and Science and Engineering teachers, as well as some general resources for all teachers.
