My wife is researching her second book and would like to use ProQuest's Historical St. Louis Post-Dispatch [1874-1922] database. She works at a state flagship university in the Midwest, but the library will not subscribe to the database citing budget concerns. Local public libraries in the area cannot afford to subscribe to it, either. Is there some giant public library out there that, for a fee, will provide researchers with a card that allows them long-distance access to this database?
She already has access, through her job, to modern newspapers (i.e. Newsbank, etc.) but specifically needs the St. Louis Post-Dispatch database that covers 1874-1922.
My wife says thank you!
