Database Search Tips

It's easy to get overwhelmed with too many results in a news database search.

Try searching just the lead/headline in Newsbank or abstract in Proquest NewsStream for more relevant results.

Limit your sources by geography to get news from the country you're researching.

Look for opinion stories to identify the "pro" and "con" arguments. Opinion stories may be labeled:

  • "Editorial"
  • "Op-Ed"
  • "Commentary"
  • "Column"

Browse Current News
