Only Magazines and Newspapers

Listed in this site are databases which list articles in newspapers and magazines (popular, trade, opinion, etc.)  --  as differentiated from scholarly or academic journals.

  • "Modern" databases -- focus on articles published since the early 1990's (although some older articles may be included).
  • "Historical" databases -- focus on articles published before the 1990's (although some more recent articles included).

Please note that the coverage of some "historical" databases may continue as far as the 21st century.
