A few Notes for Cite Checkers
Some major newspapers are digitized, albeit normally on a delayed basis. Select sources offering digitized versions of newspapers are available here. Bobst Library may also offer some newspapers in microfilm. Check Bobcat for holdings. Many smaller newspapers though are not available at NYU or elsewhere in digitized format or in microfilm. Fortunately, many periodicals, especially law reviews, are now choosing to cite newspapers to their online forms.
Cite checkers should be aware that there are often differences between the online and print versions of newspaper articles, particularly in the titles. While the changes are often not substantively, they can impact citation. So, check to make sure that the title of the article matches the citation format used.
