Searching Newspapers

Other than large databases with multiple newspapers, the individual web sites of many national and local newspapers can also serve as great resources. You may have to create a free account. You may find titles only, but no full text.

TIP: You can always type that title in the QuickSearch search box to see if Rutgers has access. If we don't, you can request the article!

Factiva: a Rutgers-restricted resource

Factiva, an archive of major global newspapers, magazines, reports, and other publications, focusing on business, might look like coming with a steep learning curve, but it is by all means most useful for locating and browsing content for your paper.


  • Rather than trying the default free text search, you may get quick results with the user-friendly Search Form, which also comes with the option of expanding the date (only 3 month by default).
  • Use the Source function (both NOT and REMOVE) to narrow your search down to a particular newspaper or author. You can use the + sign to locate a source or start typing to get the autofill function.
  • Sorting is available by relevance or time (under More Options, bottom of the page).


Factiva News Pages (second tab from the right, choose Factiva pages) provide a great opportunity to browse the most recent issues of major national newspapers, such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York, Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, the Chicago Tribune, Forbes, USA Today, and more.


Select "United States" in the pull down  menu on the top left of the page to get the above newspapers in your feed.
