You can access all the articles from several major U.S. daily papers via Factiva in E-Resources/Databases. Just click on News Pages in the black header, then select Factiva Groups from the pull down menu. This is not the same as access to the digital editions, i.e., of these papers, which are not available through Harvard at this point.

The latest issues of many popular magazines, as well as selected academic journals are found via Academic Search Premier.

There are other options. Take the  New York Times, for instance: from the HOLLIS full text link to the New York Times, you will see a selection of e-resources that provide access to the New York Times in full text. I suggest choosing the link to Lexis Nexis or Factiva because the others don't necessarily provide cover-to-cover indexing or index the right time period.

In Lexis Nexis, you have to tell it what paper you're searching. To do so, click on "News" in the left-hand navigation menu, then under "Select Source" in the search window, type in your journal title: New York Times. Above that, you can specify the date, and above that, you can enter a keyword term to search. This should bring up some articles matching your specifications.

Another example: The Chronicle of Higher Education. Search HOLLIS for it, then click on the "view online" tab. When you are then presented with a selection of databases, choose the last one, Miscellaneous E-Journals. This one links to the actual Chronicle website, but with subscription-level access. 

You might have to check more than one e-resource vendor to find the appropriate one for your needs. Don't hesitate to ask us whenever you're stumped. You can also call the Widener Reference desk at 617-495-2411.
