We are really excited that the New Orleans Times-Picayune Historical collection has been added to our NewsBank online newspaper database. Issues available date all the way back from 1837. These digital scans are of the newspapers themselves, and contain the original images and advertisements not just the text from articles.
Navigating the collection is straightforward and you can search by keyword or browse by date, article type or era. For each issue there is a table of contents listing the articles on each page. Articles can be printed, emailed, converted to PDF format and downloaded to your computer.
The archives make for fascinating viewing whether for genealogical research or just for a step back in time. It’s easy to get lost in the old headlines. All you need to access the collection is your library card.
