FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCE WITH THIS SITE... BUILDING A GREAT SEARCH • The easiest way to search is to simply type your search term(s) in the basic search box. • You can enclose your search terms in double quotation marks to indicate terms that are part of a phrase. o For example, searching for “Lincoln gives speech” would search only for pages containing those words in that order, and not pages containing those words in a different order, such as: “...gives a speech. Lincoln is a great...” o This is one way to search for a person or obituary. For example, searching for "John Smith" will locate pages containing the words John and Smith together. • You can use the all-capital term OR to obtain results containing at least one of your search terms. o Abraham OR Lincoln will locate any page containing either Abraham or Lincoln. o At this time, no other Boolean operators are functional (AND, NOT, etc.). We are working to make these improvements. OTHER HELPFUL HINTS • To find a word or phrase on the newspaper page you are viewing: o Use the Find tool (magnifying glass icon) in the Adobe Reader toolbar.  Click on the magnifying glass icon to open the search box.  Type your search term or phrase.
