  2. Click Select and select a newspaper title
  3. Select a Year
  4. Select a Month
  5. Select a Day – usually it will start loading the newspaper at this point, if not then
  6. Select a Page

Once the paper loads, use the thumbnails at the bottom of the screen to scroll  through the paper.  When you find a page you want to view click on it.  It will appear in the large window.  Hint: To enlarge, click the “Fill Window icon on the tool bar (see below).
