Extra, extra, read all about it!

One of our librarians, Jennifer Kegler, recently created a new library guide focusing on newspapers. While scholarly journal articles are often what is called for in research, sometimes newspaper articles are just the ticket. For example, when researching some recent issue or event, like the hostage crisis in Algeria in recent days, newspapers are your source of information, there will be no scholarly articles on that crisis as of yet. At other times a researcher needs primary documents, for example a researcher into the Spanish American War might benefit from newspaper articles from that era. Jennifer's guide will help lead you into the rich newspaper collections we have available.
