Early this year in March 2012, Sabinet launched the Retrospective Transvaal Provincial Gazettes. We are pleased to announce the launch of the Retrospective Natal Provincial Gazettes Archive.
This archive gives the legal and research sectors fast and easy online access to the full text of Natal Provincial Gazettes from 1910 to 1994.
Subscribers to the Sabinet Retrospective Natal Provincial Gazettes Archive will be able to find the information they need by using an efficient Google-like search interface. The text of the Gazettes is fully searchable and an automatic relevance ranking process ensures that the document searched for is likely to be displayed on top or in the first few results of the search. Faceted browsing is also available to assist with the finding of documents.
By using an online archive, institutions no longer need to store their own onsite paper archives. This can significantly reduce costs in terms of physical storage space as well as time spent searching through paper archives.
Annual scalable subscription options are available to accommodate various users, while ad hoc documents can be purchased on request.
Complementary online services offered by Sabinet include a Provincial Gazettes service which provides subscribers access to gazetted information from 1995 to date; a Government Gazette service which gives access to Gazettes from 1994 to date as well as the Retrospective Government Gazettes Archive containing Government Gazettes from 1910 – 1993 and Retrospective Transvaal Provincial Gazettes Archive containing Transvaal Gazettes from 1910 – 1994.
