S SCI 160 Introduction to Gender Studies (Marshman): Finding newspaper articles

A Guide to Research in Gender Studies - for students in Michelle Marshman's class

Newspaper articles

Newspapers provide a daily record of events.

Use newspapers to

  • find current information about international, national and local events .
  • find editorials, commentaries, expert or popular opinions.

Where should I start?

The tool that will help you find newspaper articles is a database. The library subscribes to many databases, and for newspaper articles, start with ProQuest (link below).

For a collection of newspaper articles and opinion pieces on current and contested issues, try the database Opposing Viewpoints (link below). Be sure to limit your search to news.
