Researchers can use the images to find not only news, editorials, letters to the editor, obituaries, and birth and marriage announcements, but also historical photos, stock photos, and advertisements. They can use the searchable ASCII text that underlies images of articles and pages to search by keyword, using Boolean operators and more advanced searching techniques. The results list generated by a search includes detailed bibliographic information for the articles retrieved, including article title, publication, issue date, author, and page number. To see a complete article, a researcher simply clicks on the title in the list and the system displays the image of the full article, "threaded" to include all graphics and continuations on other pages as a single unit. Researchers also can display the complete image of any page in any issue or even browse the database and scan individual issues page by page. The database is available on the Web through ProQuest.
The Times, the 'world's newspaper of record,' covers all major international historical events from the French Revolution to the Falkland War. The database enables users to search the full-text of the entire newspaper. The text within the images is also fully searchable at the article level. Users can therefore search news articles, obituaries, advertising and classifieds - virtually everything that appeared in the newspaper. Results are displayed at the article level, and users may view the article or the full page upon which it appeared. A Browse feature allows for searching through a specific issue of the paper via individual page images. Please note that online coverage of the Times after 2006 is available in several sources.
