Nagħtuk merħba f’dan l-arkivju diġitali.

F’dawn il-paġni qed niġbru, b’mod diġitali, artikli li ġew ippubblikati u li jittrattaw il-wirt kulturali taż-Żejtun.  Il-biċċa l-kbira ta’ dawn l-artikli ġew ippubblikati fil-kotba li joħorġu mill-parroċċa u l-għaqdiet taż-Żejtun għal ġranet tal-festa.

Kif tistgħu taraw, dawn l-artikli huma arkivju ta’ informazzjoni storika li l-biċċa l-kbira minnha ġiet riċerkata b’mod professjonali.  Dan l-arkivju għandu jkun għajn ta’ informazzjoni għall-istudenti u dawk kollha li jixtiequ jsiru jafu aktar dwar il-wirt taż-Żejtun.

Int tista’ tfittex f’dan l-arkivju diġitali b’diversi modi kif ser tara b’dawn l-eżempji:

1. Jekk qed tfittex informazzjoni dwar “Arkitettura” tista tfittex dan taħt is-suġġett innifsu u hemm isib lista sħiħa ta’ artikli li inkitbu dwar l-arkitettura fiż-Żejtun.  Dawn qiegħedin miġbura f’ordni alfabetika skond il-kunjom ta’ l-awtur.

2. Jekk tixtieq tfittex bl-isem ta’ l-awtur li kiteb l-artiklu (eż Kan Dun Joe Abela), fittex taħt isem l-awtur (ABELA, JOE. KAN).  Dawn qiegħedin miġbura f’ordni skond is-sena li fiha ġew ippubblikati.

3. Tista’ wkoll tfittex artikli skond il-ktieb li fih ġie ippubblikat (eż. Iż-Żejtun).  Dawn miġbura sena b’sena meta ġew ippubblikati.

4. Tfittxija oħra hija bis-sena ta’ pubblikazzjoni.  Hemm xi snin li fihom hemm pubblikazzjonijiet neqsin minħabba li ma rnexxilniex insibu kopja ta’ xi ħarġiet.  Żewġ snin partikolari, l-1987 u l-2010 ma saritx il-festa, għalhekk ma ġewx ippubblikati kotba.

La darba sibt u għażilt l-artiklu li tixtieq taqra kull m’għandek tagħmel huwa li tikklikja fuq l-isem ta’ l-artiklu u wara ftit ħin jitla’ l-artiklu f’format PDF.
