Newspapers

Newspapers provide articles each day about current events and are a good source for local information.

Newspapers, like journals and magazines, are called periodicals because they are published regularly, or periodically.

You can find newspapers in print or microform format, or on the Web as electronic newspapers. Most newspapers are made available to you by subscriptions purchased by your library. Many newspapers have their own Web sites with today's news, and sometimes they provide earlier, popular articles free.
