The Library: News Resources

Subject research

Our Subject Support pages can help you with research for your studies.

You can also book appointments with one of our Academic Librarians.

Historical news sources

Historical news sources allow you to research how events were portrayed in the media at the time, and also look at the format and layout of the news sources.

Gale Primary Sources  allows you to search across many of our historical newspaper archives. It also includes a term frequency function. This allows you to track how often a word or phrase has been used over time, making it an ideal way to look at social developments or ideas in different historical contexts.
