News Sources

Use the library's subscriptions to hundreds of news sources through our databases and e-journals. This is especially helpful when:

  • you need previous articles that are no longer available for free from the web site
  • you want to search across multiple sources at once--e.g. The New York Times and The Washington Post are included with other major US papers in LexisNexis Academic
  • you want to search across a longer time period than is available on the free web

Strategies:

  • Go to Online Journal Titles and type the name of the newspaper; or
  • Search one of the Newspaper Databases: Browse Databases by Subject: Reference/Newspapers/world area
  • Many include other news sources like wire services, BBC, etc. as well as international sources translated into English
