The ProQuest Historical Newspapers database gives you access to an archive of newspaper documents, which includes images of documents and newspapers as they were originally published and printed.
Page Map is a low-resolution image format designed for navigation. Use Page Map to browse a page or issue of a newspaper quickly, scanning for documents that interest you.
If you want to read the entire page, you should use the Page Image format, a high-resolution image format. Use Page Image when you want to read, print, or review an entire page from a newspaper.
Page Map format lets you browse an issue of a newspaper, navigating to documents that interest you. As you move your mouse over the page, a highlighted text box will pop up displaying the headline of the document. By clicking on the document, you will be taken to that document in document Image format.
When you are in either Page Map or Page Image mode you can use Page-By-Page Browsing to scan an issue of a newspaper much as you would a paper in its original print form. Use the Previous and Next buttons and Go to Page drop-down menu to browse the paper. Click Previous to see the newspaper page immediately preceding the one you're currently viewing. Click Next to see the page that follows the one you're viewing. To jump to a specific page, select the page you want from the Go to Page drop-down menu.
To open a document in document Image format from Page-by-Page Browse mode, you must be viewing the Page Map. Then place your mouse pointer over documents to see a pop-up message containing the title of the documents. When you find a document that interests you, click it to open that document in document Image view.
