Research Tip: Searching Newspapers

Tip #17: Searching Full-text Newspapers

  • Think like a journalist. What words would they use to write about the topic? What names of people, places, or events could you use?
  • Use OR for synonyms or variant spellings to increase results. (e.g., riot OR protest)
  • Use the asterisk (*) to get multiple endings of a word. (e.g., riot* for riots, rioters, rioting)
  • To get words closer together, use proximity operators. (see the database's help page for correct syntax)
  • Use limits for publication dates and types of articles (e.g., editorials, news, etc.)
