    Basically, no. Most INA hosted regional titles are INA-exclusive as they have done the OCR of the microfilms themselves - and I believe they have an exclusive licence to the Independent News & Media regional archive that INM did themselves.

    There are more local papers not archived anywhere than there are on the INA/BNA/ProQuest, remember - you'd need to hit up county libraries or the National Library for those. Where I live there's a still extant independent local going back to the 80s that would probably do 10x the local coverage of the main county big boy that's on the INA for instance.

    I know but the libraries are closed now. Thanks

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
