News & Newspapers
72% of researchers use newspapers in their research…
… (and 88% recommend newspapers to their students).
News sources are used by every type of researcher, from novice to advanced, because they provide coverage of topics in every discipline. And in many cases, they are the best or only source of information on a topic.
ProQuest provides an unparalleled collection of digitized news content, spanning the latest headlines and developments in contemporary politics, culture, health and technology, to historical coverage of important (and sometimes forgotten) people, places and events dating back to the 1700s.
In addition to prominent and respected titles like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Le Monde and others, ProQuest also offers curated regional, specialty and international news titles and collections for a wide spectrum of viewpoints and counterviewpoints over time.
