Using Newspapers for Research

The type of research you are doing greatly influences your approach when working with newspapers. Are you researching current events or a historical event? You may need to consult a variety of formats: online website of a single paper, a library-subscribed database with hundreds of sources, sets of microfilm, or simply flip through a newspaper in print. Ask your librarian for the best approach and how to find appropriate sources.
