Below are some suggestions for starting points.

If you need a specific newspaper article and have the citation, use Citation Linker to check for the full text online, in print, or on microfilm. Be sure to type the newspaper name (not the article title) in the "Journal title" search box.  

If you need to find contemporary newspaper articles by searching topic words, use LexisNexis Academic or Factiva.  It's helpful to use the pulldowns to specify which newspapers or newspaper collections and dates you are searching. 

If you need older articles from historical newspapers including the New York Times, select one or more newspapers from:

ProQuest Historical Newspapers (scroll down to see the list of historical newspapers available)

There are many additional ways to search for newspaper articles.  This Guide to Newspapers and Newspaper Indexes is an excellent resource.   If you need more assistance, please contact the Reference Desk in Widener at 617-495-2411.
