General Newspapers Databases

Newspaper articles can be searched for by using certain indexing databases, for example:

  • Some databases such as 19th Century British Library newspapers specialize in historic newspapers
  • Some general databases such as  Humanities Index regularly index newspaper as well as journal articles
  • Some databases such as Nexis specialize in up to date newspaper articles.

Nexis UK  is primarily a business and legal information database, but one of its major features is a substantial corpus of full-text British, European and US newspapers. From the Sources drop-down menu on the search screen you can select specific categories of newspapers such as UK national or regional newspapers.  The More Sources link allows you to select newspapers in specific languages or individual newspaper titles to search. Nexis UK currently has newspapers in Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish (including South American).The full text files of most newspapers go back over the last 10-20 years.
