Newspapers provide articles each day
about current events and are a good source for local information.
Newspapers, like journals and
magazines, are called "periodicals" because they are published
regularly, or periodically.
Use a Newspaper
- to find current information about
international, national and local events

expert or popular opinions
Examples: LA Times
* Wall Street Journal * New York Times
You can find newspapers in print or
microfilm format, or on the Web as electronic newspapers. Most
newspapers are made available to you by subscriptions purchased by
your library. Many newspapers have their own Web sites with today's
news, and sometimes they provide earlier, popular articles free.
