News Networks & Outlets

Great for breaking news, and stories hot as of the day.  Some of your topics are more ongoing, and you may have better luck searching through the news databases for recent, albeit not today's, stories and coverage.

Online Newspapers

Most online newspapers limit their access to non-subscribers.  You are usually allowed to view a set number of stories, or only partial access to stories.  We do have subscriptions to the digital editions of both the Inquirer and the New York Times.  You can also use the magazine and newspaper databases to search more comprehensively on your topics.

Current Events for Students

These sites are created with students in mind.  While the coverage is more limited, they provide great tips, for example, looking at liberal v. conservative perspectives.

  • SIRS Leading Issues  
    You can search or browse this database, and sort your results by date for the most recent articles. This is a selective, as opposed to "cover to cover" database, but it has excellent coverage on most of your topics. You can also set RSS feeds so that each time a new article is added to the database on your topic, you'll receive an email.
  • Opposing Viewpoints Issues  
    Overview and news articles from a variety of sources. You can limit your searching to magazine and/or newspaper articles, too. Like SIRS, this is a selective database, as opposed to "cover to cover" like Newspaper Source and Master File.
