OSU Libraries has a trial of Proquest Digital Microfilm.  Access to the trial requires a password, please contact your subject librarian to obtain the login information. The trial will run through October 31, 2010.

ProQuest Digital Microfilm provides scanned newspapers in microfilm, accessible around the clock via an intuitive, easy to use, online interface. Researchers can access full-page, cover-to-cover newspaper content from anywhere an internet connection is present. Digital Microfilm allows multiple, simultaneous users from subscribing libraries to scroll through the scanned microfilm as they would with standard microfilm equipment, or they can access the content using metadata: newspaper title, date, and page numbers. Digital Microfilm also allows users to print, crop, email, or save images for later reference. Additionally, Digital Microfilm offers two image resolutions: lower resolution for quick scrolling and navigation, and a higher resolution to make the most of charts and photographs.

The STAT-USA Office will cease operation on September 30, 2010. The STAT-USA database will not be available after that date. This includes the State of the Nation and the National Trade Data Bank (NTDB) resources.

For more than 25 years, the Office of the U.S. Department of Commerce through the STAT-USA database provided the business community with one place to go to access an extensive collection of U.S. economic and finance data, international trade statistics, and market research reports. Divided into two main areas, State of the Nation (SotN) tracked the U.S. economy while GLOBUS & NTDB provided international coverage with country and market research reports.

We have created a guide that captures the URLs of all the data pages from which STAT-USA pulled information. You can find it on the Library Guides page or click on this tiny url: http://tinyurl.com/3yhjchp
