Tips for Finding Newspaper Articles About Social Issues

When searching for articles by a topic, a phrase or a person's name use quotation marks. Quotation marks will help you to search more effectively by locating an exact match of that searched topic, phrase or person's name in the newpaper database.

For example:

"organic food"

"United States"

Additional search boxes can be used to add additional search terms as needed.

In many of the databases search filters can help you to limit your search by format type.
