Finding & Using Articles

Using Newspaper Articles

Newspapers are an excellent source for information on current events or local, national or international news. Because newspapers are published (for the most part) on a daily basis they provide information that may not yet be reflected in other less frequent publications.

Current copies of several local newspapers can be found in the Library Learning Commons. Other newspapers, including international papers can be accessed via our electronic databases. *News is one of the subjects listed.

*For a list of International Newspapers available online, please see the News Websites tab.
