Both dailies and non-dailies (weeklies, etc.) are in the collection. The majority of the newspapers have been scanned from microfilm and microfiche. Currently, the collection is organized by place and by the date of the microfilm roll. For dailies, you can get within three months of the date you're looking for. For weeklies and irregular frequency newspapers, selecting a roll will usually get you within a few years of the date you're looking for. Eventually all surviving Alberta newspapers will be available on this site. However, there is a great deal of content already.

The strength of the community has been the people who have chosen to live there and who have left us interesting traces of their lives and the times. Much of the material used to research this book comes from newspapers, diaries, letters and other first-person documents, and archival photographs. Wherever possible, original quotes and stories in the language of the residents of the town appear throughout this history.More Information: BOOK - Essays in Scotch-Irish History Edited by E.R.R.
