Article Databases -- Newspapers

NewsBank Access World News
Use this commercial database to search a state's newspapers (and other media sources) for recent articles, all of which are provided in full-text form.

  • Just click on the map for your state.
  • You will need to enter at least one search term -- maybe a candidate's name.
  • Search results initially will be arranged by "Best Matches First." For the most recent coverage, click on the "View -- Newest First" option, above the list of results.

If you want to just browse through the sites of newspapers in your own state, OnlineNewspapers.com is a great starting point.
