How to search National Newspapers Expanded?

In this example, we are locating any corporate news article(s) for "Oregon kicks dirty coal habit" published in Environmental News Network on March 7, 2016

1. Advanced Search - "perform a more detailed search using pull-down menu" Try searching for company/organization, location, person, or topic. "The Thesaurus allows you to find subject terms to narrow or broaden your search."

e.g. Searching Oregon as a location AND coal as a topic


2. "Publication Date defaults to search all dates." Select an option that includes the time frame you need.

e.g. Locating an article after the independent news article was published

3. More Search Options

"The Source type limit refers to the publication type." Limit your search by selecting Newspapers.

"The "Document type limit is used to refer to the format of the full-text." Limit your search by selecting Article and News.

4. Display Options - "The Sort results by menu controls the sort order of the records that appear in the results page. Sort by date (most recent first). Relevance is determined by ... the number of times your search terms appear in the record as well where in the record your search terms appear."
