Cover photo

There’s a new video tutorial available in the Newspapers.com Help Center. “Searching Newspapers.com” joins “An Introduction to Newspapers.com” and demonstrates effective ways to search for people and historical events in the millions of pages available on the Newspapers site.

Searching Newspapers.com” shows how to narrow a search by date and location, how to add a range of dates to your search criteria, how to save a search so you can be notified if new results are added, and how to alter a search without starting from scratch. It also explains the limitations of placing search terms within quotation marks.

Both video tutorials are about five minutes in length and are full of useful tips. You may want to pause or navigate backward and forward so you can review the steps more thoroughly. They are accompanied in the Help Center by many other help topics like clipping, following a paper or person, using profile pages, and printing and downloading an image or clipping. Send us your feedback and let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to see explained more fully through a video tutorial.
