What are "news sources"?
Why are newspapers and news sources useful for academic work?
Print: OC Libraries maintain small collections of print newspapers, usually only for a set period of time (for example, the last 4 months).
Microform: Older issues of many newspapers are available on microfilm or microfiche, and are housed in the designated microform areas at each campus library. Microform readers are also available.
Databases: Articles from many local, Canadian, and international newspapers can be accessed from the Library’s subscription databases. Use keywords to search within many newspapers at once.
Web-based (free and online): Many newspapers provide some free access to their latest issue online. However, the online version usually differs from the print version, and access to past issues is often by subscription only. There are also many reputable online only news sources.
Local Area Files: OC Libraries maintain files of newspaper clippings on a variety of subjects pertaining to the Okanagan region. These can be searched in the Library Catalogue using keywords, or can be browsed in each Library.
