Do you know that news sources can be really useful for your research projects? News sources are written for the general public, which means they can be easier to read and understand than an in-depth academic article about a topic. And news sources often report about academic research, so using news sources can be a way to gather some background information on a topic that you are just learning about before you dive into the deep end of academic and peer reviewed journals.
At the Hunter College Libraries, we offer access to a wide array of news resources. In our Databases menu, select the “Type” filter and choose “News and Newspapers,” or just follow this link: https://library.hunter.cuny.edu/databases/type/11
The list includes historical newspapers as well as current, up-to-date news sources from mainstream and alternative media outlets. Read the descriptions and choose the best one for your needs!
Remember that you can also claim two FREE online newspaper accounts of your own with your Hunter email address. Details can be found at this link: https://library.hunter.cuny.edu/news/claim-your-free-online-newspaper-su...
