Reminder: Online Access

  • Library resources require going through CWRU Single Sign-On.
  • The best method is to follow links from the library website.
  • When logged in and a browser window is not closed, access should continue from resource to resource.
  • Remember to close your browser when done.

Online Newspapers and News in Foreign Languages

  Some library newspaper databases provided news in foreign languages.

  In Nexis Uni, there is a link for "Foreign Language News" under "Search by Subject or Topic" above the main search box.

Non-English Languages in Databases


EBSCOhost (Academic Search Complete) has many databases and offers more than 30 language choices.

Listen to an article: When the microphone 'Listen' icon appears, you can choose the language you would like to hear. Choose American, Australian, or British accents, and Slow, Medium, or Fast speeds. Download the MP3 file for listening later!

Some articles can be "translated" to another languages in EBSCO databases. From the article detail (html articles only), use the "Choose Language" drop-down list.

Print or save a translated text with your browser's Print or Save function. If you print, email, or save the full text from the database, it will be delivered in the original language it is in the database (before you change it.) Note: translating is an automated "gisting" application, resulting in a translation that is meant to enhance your understanding of the original document. It does not produce the kind of translation that a human translator would provide.

ProQuest has 12-18 language choices (Accounting, Tax & Banking, Dissertations & Theses, Nursing & Allied Health Databases). Click on the "Language" filter on the left of the result page to refine.

KSL provides some Non-English language resources/databases. You'll find Latin American resources and French literature.
