Post & Courier - 2000 to Recent Issues Available

The Post & Courier content backfiles from Jan 5th, 2000 to recent issues are now working again in the Custom Newspapers and PowerSearch databases. Earlier this Summer, large chunks of issues dissappeared leaving a handful of days worth of content out of 365 days a year for years such as 2003. Typically, a person will find about 30 or so articles depending on if it was a busy or slow newsday, in each issue of the newspaper with a local or regional focus with feature articles. Most of the recent issue content was not affected over the Summer and Fall by this gap in content. Keep in mind that individuals also have index coverage of the Post & Courier (1994 to current) , including a death index, with the Post & Courier Index that is maintained by the Charleston County Public Library This database not require a library card or in branch only use. Bottom line, you can once again access Charleston and regional area news coverage with backfiles for Post & Courier content again within Custom Newspapers/PowerSearch databases from Jan 5th 2000 to recent issues in full text.
