Research Tip: Searching Newspapers
Tip #17: Searching Full-text Newspapers
Think like a journalist. What words would they use to write about the topic? Are there names of people, places, or events?
Use OR for variant spellingsor synonyms to increase results or use "Allow Variants," if available. (e.g., Afghanistan OR Affghanistan OR Afghaunistan; Kabul OR Cabool OR Cabaul)
Use the asterisk (*) to get multiple endings of a word. (e.g., Afghan* for Afghan, Afghans, Afghanistan)
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.)
