News

If needed for your weekly "In the News" assignment, the library offers access to a multitude of news, magazine, trade journal, and broadcast media sources--many of which have premium content on their public website.

Please don't ever pay for an article!

If you are asked to pay at the newspaper or magazine's website, browse to the title using the "E-Journals" title search tab for free access through the library. If you don't find what you are looking for, ask a librarian (<<<---) for help!

Example:

Wall Street Journal website | Same article found using E-Journals title search

 

News Online at the Library

The News & Newspaper Sources research guide will help you explore news available through the library. COMM 370 students may also find the News Media Trends research guide helpful.
