Globe and Mail - Canada's Heritage from 1844

A uniquely valuable retrospective on Canada from its earliest periods to the end of the 20th century. Users can search a pdf rendering of the Globe and Mail by word/phrase or date, and within each option specify section, page content, and start date (searches are conducted in 5-year intervals). Within the word/phrase search page, it is also possible to perform a keyword, exact phrase, or Boolean search.

Example: Searching the exact phrase penal reform in the News section produces 6 hits from 1881 to 1884, one of which discusses, at length, a conference on prison reform.
