Conducting News Research

Finding News Sources

In addition to web search platforms like Google, you can also find news sources using library's resources. Some advantages include:

  • The library provides access to subscription resources, helping you get around paywalls
  • News outlets included in the library's resources generally adhere to journalistic integrity standards
  • The library's resources include advanced search options not available in Google
  • While Google prioritizes news items based on your search history, library resources are free of that kind of bias

Here are two main library resources for news:

Newspaper Source Plus  Full text articles from more than 1,200 newspapers, as well as magazines, newswires, and TV and radio transcripts


The New York Times The library has a subscription to The New York Times website. Follow these steps to create an account and access content:

  1. Start here: You will be prompted to log into PortalGuard if you haven't done so already.
  2. Click the Login button at the top right of the homepage. This will take you to a page where you can create an account using your Arcadia email address and password. 
  3. You should then be able to log in to with those same credentials anytime, anywhere. 

     If you have any difficulty creating an account or accessing content on The New York Times website, please contact so we can help troubleshoot issues and get you connected to the news articles you want to see. (Clearing your browser's cache and browsing history for the last 24 hours often solves login/access problems).

To find out if the library has a subscription for a specific news source, such as a local paper, search for the name of the publication using the Find a Journal tool. The results will tell you if the library has a subscription, and how you can access it.
