How to Choose Your News

This page provides a list of many news resources available through Rowan University Libraries. We encourage you to use the tools in this guide to evaluate the information in these newspapers and news magazines for credibility, accuracy, and harmful bias. 

Many newspapers and news magazines offer limited access on their websites, so these resources on this page might be especially helpful if you are looking for past issues. These databases allow you to search many news sources at once, to search a specific publication, or to browse specific issues. 

Accessing News Articles or Publications

Within Rowan Library

Specific Newspaper Publications:

  • Most newspapers and news magazines to which the library has access can be located via the Journal Finder (within Library Search). When you locate the correct title, check the publication dates and where the item is available.
  • Historical newspaper titles that are provided through library databases like Historical Newspapers (Proquest) and Accessible Archives are NOT usually indexed in Journal Finder. If you are looking for an historical newspaper and do not find it in Journal Finder, please also search Historical Newspapers (ProQuest) under the "Publications" tab.

Beyond the Library

For those items you don't find available through the Library, you may wish first to see if they’re freely available online (search the Google News Archive or do a general Google search).

If they are not freely available online, search in WorldCat for other libraries that have the item (do a title search and limit the format to newspapers). You can then request a specific item via interlibrary loan, or you may wish visit the library or archive that houses the materials.
