Hints and Suggestions for Using the Collection
Editorials in the collection have been grouped by event. Selecting one
of the events in the "Editorials" section from the menu on the left
side of the screen will produce
a list of all available editorials about that event. This list of editorials
can be displayed by date or by political party. Individual editorials can
be displayed by following the relevant link. Once a specific editorial is
displayed you can go directly to the next editorial in the sequence by
following the [PREVIOUS][NEXT] links at the bottom of the page.
You can search through the editorials using a specific keyword or
combination of keywords. Searches can match an individual word or
words, words that appear together in a single sentence, or specific
phrases. Wildcard searches are not currently available but will be
added in the next major project update. Searches can be limited to
those editorials produced in during a specific event, in a specific
region of the country, or by a specific political party.
The mapping tool displays the geographic distribution of keyword
results. The map shows relative usage frequencies for the keyword as
used by individual newspapers.
