Spring 2021: Sherrill and Moriarty Library are closed as part of the Lesley University COVID-19 response. Please visit us online through our library website and via our Ask-A-Librarian service,and see our Remote Services Guide.
Many newspapers are on the open Web, but some have paywalls for older issues or offer a limited amount of free access per month.
Accessing newspapers through the Libraries:
Newspaper articles can also be found in many of the Library's databases through @LL Search by limiting to 'News' (under 'Format' on the search results page):
Generally, when you are looking for a specific item, it's easiest to search for the title in @LL Search. However, this can be difficult for newspapers articles, because the title in print or online can differ slightly from the title it's listed under in our databases. For example, the New York Times article "Apple Card Investigated After Gender Discrimination Complaints," dated November 10th, is available through the Library's New York Times database, but it is under the title "Apple Card Faces Inquiry After Charge It Is 'Sexist'" and dated November 11th. When looking for a specific newspaper article, try using the Advanced Search and using information such as the author's name, and the date range it was published. This should help locate an article, even if the database title differs from the version online.
