While you can search for individual newspaper articles or research news-related topics using library resources like OneSearch@IU, did you know that the Libraries subscribe to several major newspapers in a more easily readable and browsable format via their apps and flagship .com sites? And these newspapers are mobile-friendly, so you can take your news with you wherever you go – over your morning coffee, on the bus, on campus or at home!
The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal each require a quick one-time activation using your IU email address – then you can access all content from a web browser or via smartphone and tablet apps from any location. (Your access will need to be renewed periodically - more information about this is included within the previous linked pages.)
Access the Chronicle of Higher Education via the Libraries’ link for full access (including premium content) from any location, on- or off-campus.
While the Libraries continue to provide access to the Washington Post, that publication discontinued unlimited free access via their apps and .com site for those with .edu email addresses effective January 1, 2018 - read more about that change.
Our Major U.S. Newspapers resource guide describes what additional access we have to these papers and others, such as the Chicago Tribune.
To discover what access we provide to any newspaper, including historical and international newspapers, try some of the great resources on the Libraries’ website: ProQuest Historical Newspapers, World Newspaper Archive, NewspaperARCHIVE (historical Indiana newspapers), African American Newspapers, the Bloomington Herald-Times Online (available only from workstations inside the Wells Library), and others. If you’re looking for a specific newspaper, try searching IUCAT by title. And as always, if you have questions, ask us!
