Best databases for recent newspapers

These databases contain the text of news stories. They generally cover time periods from either the 1990s or the 2000s onward.

Newspaper images are not included in these particular UOW databases.

How to access recent news articles with images

For recent news content, UOW databases do not contain images such as photos, graphs, cartoons, advertisements.

If you're looking for recent news stories or content try:

  • a newspaper's own website to see what is freely available to you without using their (fee-based) paywall
  • news aggregator websites (such as Google News) which combine syndicated content from various news agencies and, in some cases, let you limit results to a specific newspaper title
  • your local public, state or national library 'digital edition' (print replica) newspaper databases.
