Using Local Newspapers for Graphics


Archives staff have noticed certain NHD research topics appear each year. To help students collect graphics for their final projects, librarians in the Archives compiled newspaper headsheets that feature headlines from various events. Students conducting their research may print off and use these visual primary sources as they wish.
