News and Newspapers

How do I find a specific source?

In almost every case, news and newspaper sources accessible via Dartmouth Library are cataloged individually, even as databases may provide access to hundreds or thousands of titles. If you have a specific title in mind, use the Advanced Search, limited to Library Catalog, and limit the search to the Title field. Want to see how it's done? Watch this brief video.

Why don't you have the source I'm looking for?

Typically, this question arises about access to a news or newspaper source and its website and related content. Dartmouth Library may or may not have acquired an institutional subscription to a source's website. One may not be available to libraries at any price. We may have the same or more content via other channels. Remember that you may be best served by using tools other than what's offered on a website's search, especially outside the most recent content.

How many sources does Dartmouth Library have in its collection?

This is a common and understandable question. The answer is altogether more difficult. News and newspaper sources are varied and changing, and the content of our subscriptions is voluminous and diverse. To understand the magnitude of current resources, look at the item count for this newspaper search.
