Some historic newspapers are digitized at the page-level, while others are digitized at the article level. The basic searching function is identical for both article-level and page-level. Every part of every page of ProQuest Historical Newspapers is full-text searchable, whether they are digitized at the article-level or page-level. If you search for a term such as the name “John Kennedy” and it appears in the text any place on a page, it will generate a hit for that page—whether it is in an article title, in an article, in an advertisement, etc.

The primary difference in searching article-level titles is in the Advanced Search: because they include article-level metadata, newspapers digitized at the article-level provide users with the ability to restrict search results to different portions of the newspaper (articles, advertisements, cartoons, etc.).

The article-level result is a bitonal (black and white) image displayed at 300dpi (dots per inch). The page-level result is a high-resolution greyscale image displayed at 400dpi, which provides almost photographic-like quality of the microfilm images. In both cases the images may be scrolled and zoomed as needed, and downloaded/saved.
