If you haven’t had a chance to check out the Library’s recent subscription to this Historical Newspapers collection yet, now is a good time. Several features are now in place to facilitate access to the content.
Enchancement over the weekend has brought a new Topics tab, which provides a screen where you can search for topics originally published in print in The New York Times Index between 1851 and 1993. You can also browse by different Categories:
These same categories are also searchable via the Advanced Search screen (click on the drop-down menu of the search box and notice the ones marked with an asterisk).
Articles published within the period covered by the NYT Index (1851-1993) have 3 additional fields:
- Topic headings
- NYT Index summary
- Print location (ie. page and column nubmers)
Check it out. Access New York Times (1851-2006) with Index (1851-1993) from the Library homepage: http://library.mtroyal.ca. Click on Find > Articles > News. It’s the 6th database listed there.
