Looking for a news article? Use the Newspaper Research Guide

The library subscribes to a number of databases that offer access to newspapers across the globe, so whether you’re trying to access a New York Times article from 1982,  yesterday’s Jerusalem Post or the Connecticut Intelligencer from 1810, we more than likely will have access to them. Start with our Newspaper Articles Research Guide whenever you’re interested in finding a newspaper article. It lists the news databases that we subscribe to, and it’s a lot more that Lexis & Westlaw!


As more and more internet newspapers institute paywalls, it becomes increasingly more important for members of the Georgetown community to realize that that the library can provide you access to the news resources. Please consult a Reference Librarian if you’re having trouble locating a specific title in one of our newspaper databases.
