Find News & Newspapers

Your guide to finding news and newspapers, fact-checking, evaluating news sources, and identifying fake news!

What kind of news am I looking for?


Consider the currency of news stories and information. How recent does it need to be?

News types may include:

  • current news
  • recent news
  • historical news
  • broadcast news (tv and radio vs. print)

To find a current news article:

  • Try the newspaper's website
  • For news stories from a variety of sources, try an aggregator such as Google News, Apple News, Feedly, (e)Science News, etc.
  • Print copies of a few selected newspapers are available at each library

To find recent news:

Newspaper websites rarely provide free access to their archives of older stories. To find news from the last few months or the last few years: 

  • Use Quick Search to check for the newspaper's title 
  • Or browse one of the news databases subscribed to by the MSMU Libraries 

To find historical news:

Newspapers are a wonderful resource for historical research. Historians spend long hours browsing through runs of newspapers in paper or microfilm format. Fortunately, there are now some online newspaper archives that simplify this process:

  • Use Quick Search to check for the newspaper's title 
  • Or browse one of the news databases subscribed to by the MSMU Libraries 

To find broadcast news:

Broadcast news is available on many websites. Check out the Find Broadcast News page below to find a list of helpful sites.
