News Research

Use this guide to find national and international, current and historical, alternative and mainstream newspapers, journals, and magazines.

Here are several Library databases of news sources to get you started.

Historical newspapers are great primary sources that can help you understand how a subject was viewed and understood at the time. They also fill in the record on people and topics that may not turn up in archival research.

Looking for a Specific Newspaper or Journal?

Use CCNY Library's Journal Title Search tool to check whether the library has access to a particular journal through our databases.
