Where can I find newspaper articles?
There are several places to look for news articles.
1) If you click on the Baker College Find Articles and Databases link, you will see a section called, News and Current Events. From here you may choose one of the databases such Newsstand or New York Times. You will want to make sure that you are searching Full Text articles in any of these databases.
2) You may want to use a web search engine, such as Google or Google News, to find articles. Not all of these articles will be from actual newspapers. Many of them will be from news blogs or television news stations. If you need an article from an actual newspaper, then you will need to pay very close attention as to the source of the article.
3) You may want to read something from your local newspaper. Many local newspapers can be accessed online by running a search in a search engine for the name of the newspaper. For example, you may want to search for "The Flint Journal" or "Detroit Free Press". Not all of the day's articles will be accessible for free online and neither will all of the past issues be accessible for free online. Try the website: http://www.mlive.com/
4) Most libraries, both Baker and you local public library, carry several daily newspapers. They often also carry some past issues as well. You can always visit your campus to read the paper. Generally, you will not be allowed to take the paper home with you, so you might want to bring your ID card to make a copy of the article.
