Learn what academic literature is, where to find it and how to use it correctly.

News sources

You can use news sources if you need current up-to-date information about a subject, and also if you want to research the history of a subject using newspaper archives.

There are many freely accessible news sources on the internet. The Library also provides access to several databases and archives of news sources.
