Searching for News in All the Right Places?

October 11, 2006

Check out this excellent review of web-based sources you can use for searching the news. Cindy Chick at LawLibTech’s recent post,  Old News? Google News! talks about the differences between the premium news aggregators, Lexis and Westlaw, and the free web-based aggregators such as Yahoo News and Google News.  What’s the difference? The short answer: historical archives versus up-to-the minute news coverage.  But with Google’s new Google News Archive Search, you can go further back in time, some 200 years.  Although you may be prompted to purchase many of the articles from Google News Archive Search, membership at your local public library may get you remote access through an online subscription such as Americas Newspapers
