Start Your Research with NYTimes.com Topics

February 12, 2009

A very useful source for research, NYTimes .com Topics Pages, was reported in the February 2009 issue of The Cyberskeptic’s Guide to Internet Research.  According to Times Topics,

Each topic page collects all the news, reference and archival information, photos, graphics, audio and video files published on topics ranging from Madonna to Myanmar[…]

Times Topics also includes links to key documents, speeches and reports.  You can find Topic pages by using the alphabetical index at the top of page, by clicking on hyperlinks within news stories or by entering terms in the website search bar. 

This is an excellent start for research on “more than 14,000 subjects.”  Some topics like the Credit Crisis, are covered more thoroughly than others like Organic Gardening; however all include links to archived news stories going back to 1981.
