Search Tips for Digital Newspapers


Stack of Newspapers

Limit by date range if at all possible as this will reduce the number of results exponentially.

Try combinations of search terms.

Be ready to execute multiple searches in order to get the results you are looking for.

Use specific search terms.

Remember to match the terminology to the time period or issue being discussed (i.e. searching  the term "African-American" in 1920s newspaper  will get you nowhere)
