Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
Although the Library's online news resources are strongest for the UK, we do also provide access to a wide range of historic and contemporary international news resources. Our most comprehensive non-UK historic resources are from the USA, and you can see these in 'The Americas' section below. The availability of historic newspaper archives depends very much on digitisation programmes in the country concerned. In terms of contemporary news, nearly all international newspapers have their own web site, but you are unlikely to find free access to their entire archive. However, the Nexis database enables you to search across thousands of newspapers, news magazines and newswires from across the world (though primarily Europe and the USA), dating back over twenty years to the present day (precise date coverage varies by title). You can search in various ways, by country, language, or search an individual newspaper.
