Tips & Special Features:


From the database provider:
"This ProQuest database meets the needs of many different research environments because of the comprehensive, high-quality indexing. It covers not only complete bibliographic information but also subjects, companies, people, products, and geographic areas. Our highly trained indexers apply the subject terms from a controlled vocabulary of about 8,500 natural-language words and phrases.

Each issue of every newspaper is indexed thoroughly, so your patrons have access to not only top news stories but also detailed information on the arts, sports, business, and popular culture. Even such items as editorials, editorial cartoons, obituaries, and letters to the editor from well-known people are indexed.

For each article cited in the database, an abstract of up to 75 words helps the researcher know if the complete text will meet his or her needs."
