How Do You Get Your News?

How Do You Get Your News?

Whether you enjoy reading the newspaper or you are researching a topic that is just too current to appear in scholarly sources, the library has several options for finding articles from newspapers!

New York Times
You can get FREE online access to the New York Times with your Elizabethtown email address. Once you sign up through the special link in our database listing, you will be able to log in directly to the New York Times website from any location. The subscription will ‘expire’ each year, but you can reactivate your pass to continue to enjoy the New York Times.

Wall Street Journal
Access the Wall Street Journal through its own dedicated database with daily papers from 1984 through today.

Newspaper Source
This database contains national, international, and regional news publications, as well as transcripts of television network news. It is possible to search and browse through individual publications, or to search across the entire database. Try using the date filters to narrow your results to a targeted date range. This is the database to use for the Washington Post!

Nexis Uni
This database has thorough coverage of national and international news publications, in addition to its special resources for business, politics, and legal researchers. Like Newspaper Source, you can browse individual publications, search the whole database, and filter by date.

Journal Finder
If you have a specific newspaper in mind, but you’re not sure which database to use, try searching the title in Journal Finder to see if it’s available. Journal Finder is located on the library’s home page behind Quick Search.

Quick Search
If you prefer to search with Quick Search, you can! Just narrow your results to newspapers.

If you have questions about newspapers or other library resources, SCPS’s Liaison Librarian, Jennifer Strain is happy to help!
