Information Literacy - or learning to do research: a life time skill: Newspapers

 

Newspapers provide access to current information about a topic or issue.  Most are published daily and the articles are relatively brief.  If you are looking for how an issue was addressed in the time that it occurred Newspapers are a great place to get this information.

Newspapers are written by journalists, not scholars, so you will not find original research here, but newspapers may report on research, i.e. "according to a recent report published in the New England Journal of Medicine . . . "  You will need to look up the original research in the original publication.  

Nexis Uni includes newspapers from around the world.  Watch the video below to learn how to search Nexis Uni.

The Morgan Library subscribes to several other Newspaper databases.  These are EBSCOHost databases and you search them just as you search the Academic Search Complete database.
