Newspaper Research

Identify where your newspapers are covered, so you can search concepts across large amounts of time & entries and get a good result list from a database. Newspapers included within databases also yield good results when you are tracking an author's work, or want to see how often articles mention a hot topic in a week/month's time.

Find out where your newspaper is included, by using the Ejournals link from the Case Catalog

Search something specific, or Browse a specific issue by selecting a year to open the volume/issues.



TIP: In any EBSCOhost databse, save time: set your page display to 50 items per page since an edition often will cover 100+ items.
