Uncovering the Recent Past

Since Columbia-Greene Media launched its HudsonValley360 website in the summer of 2017, the entire digital archive of the Register-Star, going back to 2002, has been inaccessible. Queries about the archive are regularly met with assurances that the content is being migrated to the new website, but it hasn't happened yet. In the meantime, Gossips learned today, if you are desperate to find an old Register-Star article, you can go to a site called NewsLibrary.com, where you can search the Register-Star archive from 2002 to the present and locate what you seek. There is a fee, however, if you want to read the article.

  1. The Claverack Library subscribes to NewsBank, a database containing newspapers and magazines from around the U.S. It includes free access to the Register Star (2002-present). Search NewsBank from home with your Claverack Library card (http://claveracklibrary.org/) or visit the library to use the resource on site.

    Other local libraries, including the Roeliff Jansen Community Library and the Hudson Area Library also have historical newspaper databases that researchers can use for free on site or remotely with a library card.
