Each issue of every newspaper is indexed thoroughly, so your patrons have access to not only top news stories but also detailed information on the arts, sports, business, and popular culture. Even such items as editorials, editorial cartoons, obituaries, and letters to the editor from well know people are indexed.
Additionally, ProQuest Newsstand is fully cross-searchable with other important ProQuest products including ABI/INFORM®.
For each article cited in the database, an abstract helps the researcher know if the complete text will meet his or her needs. Abstracting and indexing are available for the more than 1,370 newspapers in ProQuest Newsstand; of these, over 1,270 are full text.
