Coverage and Copyright

The Saskatchewan News Index was compiled from a number of print and electronic indexes of Saskatchewan newspapers. The original organizations hold copyright to the citations that they contributed . These indexes were created by:

Saskatoon Public Library
Saskatchewan Provincial Library
Regina Public Library
Legislative Library of Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan Archives Board Variations in spelling and grammar are transcribed as they appear in the printed texts.

 

The Saskatchewan News Index coverage varies from index to index. In general coverage includes Saskatchewan originated stories rather than national stories. Usually the index does not include:

Stories about accidents, unless there is loss of life in Saskatchewan or is an extremely unusual event and therefore a major news story.
Advertisements, unless they provide some information about a company (grand opening, closing, moving, etc.)
Birth and wedding announcements or funeral notices.
Editorials, letters to the editor, or viewpoints unless they deal with a significant issue of current popular interest.
Sports stories, except those containing biographical information or concerning local champions.
