A guide to our contemporary, historic and business newspaper sources for the UK and other countries

The main way to access UK national and regional news is online through the Lexis database (see details below). We do have print copies of The Times, The Guardian and The Financial Times (FT), which we keep for eight days (we keep the FT for two months). These can be accessed at the Library Help Desk in the Philip Robinson Library. For international news, we advise you start with the Nexis database (see details below). Please note that these online databases will simply provide you with the text of an article and not accompanying images. For TV or audio news, we suggest you start with Box of Broadcasts and then investigate the other links below.
