   I sent my American Periodical Series query to the ProQuest Historical Newspapers guy.  He's not the right ProQuest guy, but he answered me right away and forwarded my message to someone else at the company.  I should have an answer about APS ONLINE soon.
   I checked at Columbia just now, and its "ProQuest Historical Newspapers" has the NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, and now WASHINGTON POST and CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR. Since NYU doesn't have APS ONLINE or ACCESSIBLE ARCHIVES or LITERATURE ONLINE, Columbia is my library of choice.
   The New York Public Library has added HERITAGE QUEST (from ProQuest/Chadwyck-Healey, for the genealogy buffs).  It has some strange stuff on it, such as Scudder Middleton's WINING AND DINING IN NEW YORK (1938) that I'd looked at. H.Q. has census records. The NYPL can't afford DOW JONES/FACTIVA and has dropped it along with other databases, such as NORTH AMERICAN WOMEN'S LETTERS AND DIARIES.
   There's little reason or pleasure to go to the NYPL anymore.  The databases aren't the best, worse than both university libraries.  All the books are offsite in New Jersey--if they can locate books at all. It's closed on Sunday and Monday, and the remaining hours are crummy, too. I used to resent the constant photo-taking and tour groups passing through, but they can have the NYPL.  I don't need it anymore.


   I ran "specialty sandwich" and "signature sandwich" through the databases.
