Name
Name searching will retrieve reported editors, founders, publishers, owners, press, printers and organizations officially affiliated with the newspaper.
Date
Date searches will retrieve the founding and cessation dates by year of a newspaper as well reported suspensions of the publication. To search for holdings by year, use the Holdings box.
Holdings
m = microform master held by reporting institution
s = service microform held by the reporting institution
[ ] incomplete or imperfect microform holdings within dates indicated
{ } hard copy/inkprint holdings
{[ ]} incomplete hard copy/inkprint holdings
{[?]} holding source reports scattered issues
? extent of holdings unknown but ownership has been reported.
Holdings searching can be used to limit the search to one reporting institution (click here for a list of reporting institutions). The abbreviation code is sufficient. To limit the search to holdings in one country, use the name of the country as shown in the reporting institution list. Searches can also be limited to single years but it is best to search by decade using an abbreviated 3 digit date. 191 would retrieve holdings between 1910 and 1919. 19 would retrieve everything published after 1899 as well as 1819. It is not possible to search by month or day.
