The Center for Media and Journalism Studies: Get Started

Research help for those looking for news-related information on the web, in libraries, and library databases.

Journalism Research

Researching a news item often involves finding background information on the story's subject and reading related reports published by other news media outlets. This guide will show you how to:

  • look up background info in books, library databases, and the free web
  • search news/journalism-specific library databases for related articles published by news outlets other than your own
