2. If you are looking for newspaper articles by topic published in the last 15-20 years, you can search large numbers of newspapers electronically using the following databases:

LexisNexis Academic
Regional, national, and international newspapers, wires and broadcast news transcripts. Use 'Easy Search,' or click on 'News' tab in the Search menu bar to access news sources grouped by region or type.

Factiva
Regional, national and international newspapers, wires, and broadcast news transcripts. Search your terms in the 'Free text' box and then limit to 'Headline and Lead paragraph' toward the bottom of the screen.
