The Davis Enterprise

Up one level

From near the end of the 19th century to today, the Davis Enterprise has been a prime source of information on Davis history. This folder provides information on the Enterprise from two perspectives: the paper as 1) chronicle and as 2) operating an archive/index of its own contents. At this time, we have one folder on the Enterprise considered from the second perspective, as creater of an archive of its own contents.

Enterprise Archiving/Indexing of Its Own Contents
Although the Enterprise started in 1898, it did not begin to archive--index--its own contents until, according to editor Debbie Davis, April, 1992. This was (and is) an index available only on a computer terminal at the Enterprise office. In addition, there are two public, online archives. One is on the Enterprise's website. The other is at a commercial database service called Newsbank that is available free to students, faculty and others with access to libraries that subscribe to Newsbank. Both these archives/indexes of the Enterprise started on August 3, 1997 and seem to give the same search results.
