The UW Databases with the padlock icon are UW Restricted--only current UW students, faculty, and staff can use them from off campus. Your students are welcome to use them (and will likely have the most success finding newspaper articles searching these UW databases) while on campus, and we hope that they'll visit a UW Library to use them again if needed.
Our website can be a bit overwhelming, so we have pulled together the most useful UW Databases and added them to the News: History Day Guide at <http://guides.lib.washington.edu/hdnews>. Students can view this before they get here and begin to use the websites listed on their resource sheets.
The titles listed under the Microfilm heading include the Microfilm A call number that the students will need to locate the microfilm in Microforms & Newspapers (MicNews). MicNews staff will be on hand to help the students locate their materials, use the computers, and the microform machines.
