Thanks Minniehaha, I was hoping I could search papers by region but I see that feature must still be coming.

You can search a number of papers at the same time by selecting and holding down the Control key.......

I have been using a Search by Region feature for ummm..... years .....   Perhaps this link will help or perhaps it is a feature that is only available for those searching Papers Past from outside of NZ.

Hello,

One of the reasons why I find PapersPast the most user friendly site for newspaper research. Have not used the UK and Au ones as much, but have done hundreds of hours of research on PP, from the comfort of my office chair.

Love their options of up to 100 results listings per page, plus the date sort option as opposed to "best match". Also; ease of switching between text recognition and actual print views; plus ease of copy and pasting of that print which is of interest from a long column of captured print.

Beats the hours of travelling to, and then hours spent finding your way around a new to you archive, be it a Family History one, University, Museum, Government Department or civil Library etc as I did with my research in he late 70's and 1980's. My last such experience being 12 days though the Autumn of 2009 at MOTAT researching their archive of magazines, which I doubt will ever get on line.

Go the PaspersPast team.

Keep up your excellent work.

The Evening Star was showing as a new title on Papers Past Home page for a little while.

Thanks Papers Past Team I too have found new material

What I often want to do is to search all the papers in one Province or region and I have been laboriously picking out Otago & Southland Papers I hope that facility may come soon !!

Quite right there Signal, this is something we're fixing for the next version of the site. In the meantime, the only way to search multiple specific titles is to go to the search interface -

http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=q&e=-------10--1----0--

- and from the drop-down list of newspaper titles, click the titles you want to search while holding down the CTRL key.
