Newspapers provide articles each day about current events and are a good source for local information.
Newspapers, like journals and magazines, are called "periodicals" because they are published regularly, or periodically.
Use a Newspaper:
- to find current information about international, national and local events
- to find editorials, commentaries, expert or popular opinions
- Wall Street Journal
- New York Times
- San Francisco Chronicle
You can find newspapers in print or microfilm format, or on the Web as electronic newspapers. Many newspapers have their own Web sites with selections from today's news, and sometimes they provide earlier, popular articles for free.
Your most reliable and complete access to newspaper articles is provided through Electronic Databases purchased by your library, such as ProQuest Newspapers or Lexis-Nexis Academic.
