Newspapers at Evergreen
We have four major news databases:
And 3 databases that include some weeklies:
Each includes a different universe of newspapers and news magazines, and each has its own search options.
Q: Wait, what? Isn't there already more free news on the Web than I could ever read?
A; Well, yes. But not all the news you want to read is free on the Web. And some of that paywalled news that you want to read is free via the Evergreen Library.
Q: Are there pros and cons to getting your news via the library?
A; You bet!
PROS: It is free! And you can do sophisticated keyword searches across many news sources at once.
Q: I see that we have pretty current access to many newspapers. What about access to the archives, the really old stuff?
A: We have access to some "really old stuff". Some of it is online, some in print, some in microfilm. If interested, contact a librarian.
Q: Is there some sort of colorful chart that would show me which national news sources are the most fact-oriented and the least propagandistic, and which lean right or left (and how hard they lean)?
A: Why yes, there is. The Media Bias Chart attempts to do exactly that. Probably no two people would draw this chart in exactly the same way, but it is an interesting exercise nevertheless.
