History Resources: Newspapers and Newscasts

Tips for Searching Newspaper Databases

  • If you get too many results, search just the headline of an article
  • Limit your search by publication type such as feature article, editorial, or advertisement
  • Limit by publication year
  • Try variant spellings or terms.  For example, you may need to search for USSR or Soviet Union rather than Russia; Negro instead of African American; Hayti rather than Haiti.
