How To Search For Specific News Articles

I understand that some of you have to search for an article on a specific topic. One way to search for an article (from a legitimate news source) is to do a search on Google News at:

Another way is to do a search on the New York Times website at:

A third way (a more sophisticated way) to do this is to search the Lexis-Nexis news database at:

If you are having trouble accessing Lexis Nexis, you will have to access Lexis Nexis at your university (physically) if you have not set up remote access to your university’s library resources.

The advantage of Google News search is the ease of it. The disadvantage of of Google News search is how it may include results from smaller or less recognized publications.

The New York Times search includes only articles from the New York Times, apparently. However, the New York Times is generally very well-recognized as a quality news source.
