Search News and Newspaper Articles

If you need newspaper articles on a topic or issue, the library's News and Current Events Subject Guide is a good place to begin. We subscribe to several database collections that exclusively index newspapers and there are links to current major newspaper content such as the New York Times and Wall Street Journal:
  • ProQuest Newspapers: access to 30+ titles covering the 1980's to the present
  • New York Times Historical Collection: 1851 to three years ago.
  • Gale Group includes three collections: Custom Newspapers (150+ national and international titles), New York Newspapers (10 state papers, including the New York Times) and National Newspaper Index (1977 - present coverage of five major newspapers).
  • Regional Business News (EBSCO): includes access for 75 business-oriented news publications.
Looking for a specific newspaper article, for example from the New York Times or Wall Street Journal? Simply "Ask FReD!" FReD is a tool to help determine if a newspaper or other periodical is available in full-text through the Empire State College library. FReD will tell you if we have the newspaper or journal, the dates available, and provide a link directly to that newspaper.

Finally, we have also gathered together a select list of Internet Resources in Current Events and News. This page contains links to the public web sites of many state, national and international newspapers and news magazines, as well as to broadcast and wire news sites
