Access World News Database at USF


Breaking news from the USF library!
Access World News provides thousands of
newspapers from around the world
in one powerful databas. To access Access
World News
first go to the top left corner and make
sure you’re logged in
you can login using your net ID if you’re
off-campus, then to find Access World
News,
one of our top database, just check under the
quick links
here – Access World News is available . Also
you can go to
“research tools”, “databases by title”
type in “access”
and see Access World News here at the top
just click on Access World News, and you’re
given this database to look through.
We can see we have 2,383 sources
to find newspaper articles and remember
these will be newspaper articles
and not scholarly journal articles so
these articles willl
usually be brief, topical, a snapshot at
the time.
You can search by keywords here through
the text
you can limit by country over here on
the map area
and you can also limit by publication
date:
for example let’s try the Afghan war
if we search say
after September
11th 2001
we can find multiple articles by year on
the left hand side
and we can see all these articles
related to
the US Afghan war. Now
let’s edit our search and
look for the Afghan war say before
1990
and we can see the results by year here
all the thousands of articles found per
year
and this is going to refer to the soviet
Afghan war
which wasn’t during the 1980s so let’s
do a new search
and we can show off the country future
so let’s go to Stanislava
who’s in Slovakia now and she can
report on one of the articles we can
find
from Slovakia available through
Access world news. Hello from Alupkov
here in the village in central Slovakia
the end of the year pig slaughter was held, followed by New Years run
carnival for children and football and
ice hockey tournaments
and this is a revival of an old
tradition when every home had a pig
and its winter slaughter was a social
occasion
reporting from Alupkov, Slovakia, this is Stanislava Janakova
and back to you Adonis. – Thank You
Stanislava
so we’ve seen two ways to use Access
world news
first to find many news articles on a
broad topic and second to find a narrow
local, or regional topic in a specific area.
That’s Access world news
available for the USF library website.
