Extra! Extra! Become an Expert at Finding New & Historic Newspaper Articles!

This session examines ways to find current and historical articles in newspapers. We’ll look at online indexes and collections of digitized newspapers, as well as explore old-fashioned ways to dig in the newspaper archives. In this workshop, you will:

  • Become familiar with the odd nature of newspaper indexing
  • Effectively search online newspaper indexes
  • Effectively use non-online resources for locating older articles
  • Find, display, and print articles from the library’s online newspaper collections
  • Find, display, and copy articles from the library’s microformat collection of newspapers
