Electronic newspapers

Most newspapers are available online. Some have archives you can search. But rather than searching individual newspapers, it makes sense to search one of our newspaper collections enabling you to search many newspapers in one go.

Electronic collections of newspaper articles

These collections are found in the eresources.  They can be accessed both on and off campus using your network login and they include searchable current and historical newspaper archives which contain many full-text articles.      

Regional Business News provides full text access to a range of international papers and news transcripts, including the Washington Times, the Banking Wire etc.

The big project world wide news is a free site that provides links to online versions of UK and international newspapers, either published or available in English.   

News on the web and RSS feeds

Current news websites are widely available on the Internet. Most TV channel UK and international have their own sites. They publish news as it breaks, but their archive can be limited to a specific time period. 

BBC news
