About Newspapers Search

The Newspapers Search interface provides access to millions of newspaper articles and news resources. Newspaper articles are separate from other OneSearch content to provide greater distinction between the scholarly resources highlighted in OneSearch and newspaper content and to make it easier to focus a search in each.

Searching for Newspaper Articles

When you search in OneSearch, newspaper articles are not integrated within search results, but there are two quick options to take you to newspaper articles.

  1. Enter a search term in the OneSearch box and then select the Newspaper articles option below the box -- this will run your search within newspaper articles only. 
  2. Enter a search term in the OneSearch box and search All content. On the search results, select the Newspapers search filter located beneath the Content Type filter in the left navigation pane. This will run your search within newspaper articles only.

Edit your search terms in the Newspapers search box to perform additional searches for newspaper articles. When you are finished searching in Newspapers, select Back to Library Search or the OneSearch button to leave the newspapers search interface and start a new search in OneSearch.
