NC Health Info

Online guide to quality health and medical information and local health services throughout North Carolina.

NC Health Info (NCHI) is dedicated to empowering your health care decisions. NCHI is a dual-language online consumer health guide. It consists of reliable and easy-to-understand resources to help you make informed decisions about your health care. Topics range from researching common illnesses, medications & therapies, finding a provider or service, as well as what questions to ask your doctor and where to find free & discounted medical services in your area. All links on NCHI have been carefully reviewed and selected by librarians at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill, as well as volunteer librarians located across the state of North Carolina. Resources are reviewed twice a year to ensure accuracy and relevance. NCHI can also connect you with a librarian at the Health Sciences Library (HSL) to help you find answers to health-related questions through Ask a Librarian, a service by the UNC University Library.

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.).
