newspapers

Newspapers provide articles about current events and are a good source for local, national and international news and information.

Newspapers, like journals and magazines, are called "periodicals" because they are published regularly--for example, daily or weekly.

You can find newspapers in print or microfilm format, or available in online research databases. Many newspapers have their own websites and feature daily articles but may not provide retrospective articles
