Newspaper articles

Newspapers include:

  • Coverage of current or very recent events
  • Eyewitness accounts of an event
  • In-depth coverage of local issues (in local or regional newspapers)
  • The public's reaction to a specific event or issue
  • The media's current portrayal, or portrayal over time, of a specific issue

You can read many newspapers on the open Web, but some now have paywalls for older issues or if you read more than a certain number in a month. You can get access to the vast majority of newspapers online through the DU Library. If you need to find a specific newspaper, visit Looking for a Specific Journal.

Accessing newspapers through the Library:

  • The DU Library provides online access to many newspapers. Search for a newspaper by title in the Library catalog.
  • Newspapers can also be found in many of the Library's databases. You can search Gale OneFile: News and Proquest Newsstream for international, national, and regional newspapers.
