The Online Pioneer Press Gets an Update!

Online access to the archives of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press has gotten an update. 

The new look features a streamlined interface and simplified search options -- designed with input from librarians and end users -- to provide faster, more intuitive access to relevant information.

The home page features a large single search box that will search both the text and page image sources.

Click either the Text or the Image format source to search just that source, or to browse issues by date.

Use the Advanced Search page to generate more useful results. You can limit search results to targeted subsets of information, combine or exclude terms for more focused results, use additional terms to get more precise results, and choose how to sort your search results.

The new integrated results screen lets you explore different information formats at a glance.

You can sort your results, refine the results, and easily email, print, save, or cite each relevant document. You can also set Alerts for yourself to learn when new content matching your search criteria is added to the database.

The new document view makes it easier to access read and use the articles you find.

Search 30 years of Minnesota history with The Pioneer Press Collection. Explore current and archived issues, as well as content only published online.

Coverage is from 1988 through the present, with full-page images available beginning with the October 3, 2018, issue.

If you are looking for articles from before 1988, the George Latimer Central Library in downtown Saint Paul has a complete set of the Pioneer Press and other Saint Paul newspapers available on microfilm. Pages and articles can be printed or saved electronically for your use.
