Q. How can I find proverbial headlines in New York times from 2000 to 2010?
If you are off-campus you will need to use your 14 digit Library Number, which can be found on your ID Card or on the Login Assistance page in MyBaker.
Baker has access to The New York Times from 1985 to the present. If you go to Advanced Search, you can limit to your time frame. However, there is no way to limit your search to proverbs. So you can either look at issues and read through the headlines looking for proverbs, or you can try searching for bits of proverbs. Ex: "worth two in the bush". ---Use quotation marks around the phrase when you search for better accuracy.
For a list of proverbs that you can try, visit Wikipedia's extensive list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_proverbial_phrases
