Finding Newspaper Articles in Spartan Search

Many newspaper articles are behind paywalls. Search in the library database for access!

Search in Spartan Search, the blue box on the library's home page. This allows you to search across everything and filter by newspaper articles.

After you hit search you can filter and sort your results on the left side. Look for the "Resource Type" tool drop-down. Then select newspaper articles and apply the filter.

If you are looking for a certain newspaper, it may be helpful to search in a specific newspaper database.
