The easiest way would be to use a newspaper, since they are published every day.  Click on Databases on our Library Home page in the "Featured Links" section to the right of the page.

Then click on "Full Text" and then specify your date with the pulldowns for month and date, and type in the year and click "Search". screenshot from Proquest Newsstand

If you want to narrow your results, you can specify a single newspaper, such as the Los Angeles Times by typing in that name and changing the pulldown to "Publication Title -PUB" and then doing the search.screenshot from Proquest Newsstand
