Question: Does the library provide access to the Atlanta-Journal Constitution?

I would like to access the AJC at the library (Atlanta-Journal Constitution).

The Library provides online access to the Journal and Constitution, 1985 to the present, via the Newsbank database: all staff-written articles are available full-text, but items not originated by AJC aren't included--e.g., "Dear Abby", horoscopes, op-ed columns, and other syndicated pieces. It’s text only, so there are no ads, no classifieds, no pictures, and no funeral notices (in recent years, brief staff-written obit listings have appeared for residents in nearby metro cities). This database can only be used in the Library (at any AFPL branch). offers a searchable archive of Constitution files 1868-1939, with limited free viewing: you don't get to see much of an abstract in your search results, so it can be very difficult to determine whether you have found the right article. Still, it can be used as an index to the microfilm for that period.


The library also provides current issues in print at every library location.
