Historic North Carolina Digital Newspaper Collection Featured

Newspapers.com North Carolina Collection. 3.5 million pages of digitized content from over 1,000 NC county newspapers.

For search tips and help resources visit: https://proquest.libguides.com/newspapersdotcom/search

Overview

Includes:
  • The Franklin Press (1888–1906)
Some historic newspapers are digitized at the page-level, while others are digitized at the article level. The basic searching function is identical for both article-level and page-level. Every part of every page of ProQuest Historical Newspapers is full-text searchable, whether they are digitized at the article-level or page-level. If you search for a term such as the name “John Kennedy” and it appears in the text any place on a page, it will generate a hit for that page—whether it is in an article title, in an article, in an advertisement, etc.

The primary difference in searching article-level titles is in the Advanced Search: because they include article-level metadata, newspapers digitized at the article-level provide users with the ability to restrict search results to different portions of the newspaper (articles, advertisements, cartoons, etc.).
