  • This session will cover how to find newspaper articles through a range of sources. Over the past ten years researching newspapers has changed dramatically. in recent years there have been developments which make finding content in newspapers a lot easier. And while you can now search a newspaper or across newspapers in the same way you might do a web search it is still important to realise is that there isn’t a single place to search for newspaper articles, sometimes you might need to search a source in a number of ways, sometimes you might need to search multiple sources and sometimes you might even need to look at the microform or the original newspaper itself.The most notable of these developments is the NLA project to digitise Australian newspapers, available via the search service Trove. We’ll spend a fair bit of this session looking at Trove today and other digitised historical newspaper services that the National Library subscribes to including the British Newspaper Archive, gale news vault and the Irish Newspaper Archives.we will spend some time on new news as well by looking at Library Press Display and Factiva Of All of the subscription services that I have just mentioned only the BNA archive ca not be accessed outside the building. Factiva, Library press Display, Gale News Vault and the Irish Newspaper archives can all be accessed from home by registered readers of the NLA – i’ll show you how as we go through.Lastly, if time permits give you a quick overview some Newspaper resources in print and microform and how you can access these
