Searching Oklahoma Newspapers Workshop At Downtown Library


There are some things you want to know that you just can’t Google.  To strike information gold, sometimes you have to dig.

If what you need can be found in a newspaper, The Metropolitan Library System can supply the shovel in the form of Oklahoma newspaper databases.  The library’s NewsBank database lets you browse 33 Oklahoma newspapers, including those from Tulsa, Stillwater, Norman, Edmond, Woodward, and even The Antlers American.  You can also access the Oklahoman through this database or through the Oklahoman Electronic Archives.

To get you started, Downtown Library, 300 Park Avenue, 606-3879, is offering a free workshop on Saturday, November 16, called “Searching the Oklahoman and Other Oklahoma Newspapers.”  It begins at 2:00 p.m.

"Please join us, and when you’re through you’ll be searching like a pro,” said librarian Lisa Bradley.
