Library links to resources for Triad F

Important Notes:

NEVER PAY FOR ARTICLES: The library subscribes to databases that have lots of articles in them from reputable news outlets. You do NOT need to pay for a subscription to a newspaper.


ALWAYS GRAB THE PERMALINK: Permalinks or permanent links are associated with articles so you can always get back to that article. You will need these for your Research Logs.


Helpful Filters for Newspaper Articles

Filters to Select from the left menu:

Source Type:  Newspapers

Publication Date:  Using a date range will help you select articles that best address your issue

Document Type: Clicking on More will let you Include News, Article, and Feature and allow you to Exclude other types of content -- Be on the look out for Editorials, Commentary, From the Right, and other Op-Ed pieces.

Publication Title: Remember to pay attention to the bias of the source itself. Is the paper neutral and known for fact reporting - or is the publication intentionally reporting with a liberal or conservative voice?
