How to Read an Entry

Date/Source - This field tells you the date of the Janesville Gazette article in which this article appeared (stand-alone dates refer to Janesville Gazette articles), or the books in which the information or photo can be found.

Search Tips

  • Start with the Headlines or Keyword field first.  Then try the Subject Heading field. For the most thorough search, try separate searches in each field using a keyword. (For example, try "fire" in the Subject Heading field, examine the results, then do another search on "fire"¯ in the Headlines Field.)  
  • Using fewer words will produce more hits. Try to use the most unique word.
  • Try to use these certain words for better access in the Headlines Field:
    --To find statistics  or maps, type in "graph" or "map." 
    --To find a chronology of something, type in "timeline"¯ 
    --To find a photo or other illustration, type in "photo"¯
  • The Date or Source field shows where a particular item is located in Hedberg Public Library. Date format in this field is dd/mmm/yyyy.*
    *If you find only a date in this field (for example, 08 Sep 2006, 1B), it's a reference to an article in the Janesville Gazette for that date. 
  • Abbreviations used in the Headlines field are: St., Ave., E., W., N., S., Co.
    We use these abbreviations consistently.  If you are searching for info on 303 E. Court St., be sure to use the abbreviations; otherwise, you will not find it.
