Yes! There are two methods you can use to search for newspaper articles in our library system.
1. Use the Discovery Search. Go to the IUP Libraries website www.iup.edu/library. In the Search Our Collections box, type in a few words that describe your topic. Notice that the Search In box is already set to our Discovery Search. Click Search.
On the right-hand side of the search results screen, you will see a list of limits you can use to refine your search. Under the format heading, click on the red Newspaper search link. Your list will now show only articles in newspapers.
2. Use the libraries' Newspaper Databases. The library subscribes to several databases that are focused exclusively on newspapers. Access these databases from the library home page by clicking on the red Library Databases button.
This will bring you to the Libraries Databases A-Z list. Look for the drop-down menu at the top of the page that says All Database Types. Open the drop-down menu and choose News & Newspapers.
Read the descriptions of each database and choose the one that best fits your research.
