To start using the database, follow this link.
Once on the NewsBank site click on "Massachusetts". If you are connecting from outside the library you will need to enter your library card number.
The Lee Library also has microfilm of the Berkshire Eagle (starting Jan. 1993), the Berkshire Record (Jan. 2000 — current), and the Valley/Berkshire Gleaner (1/1/1857 — 6/2/1944).
