Answer

To get to LexisNexis, click on the DATABASES tab in the middle of the library homepage >>> "L" >>> LexisNexis Academic.  If you’re on campus it will connect directly.  If you’re off campus, you will see a UHD page asking you to log in with your username and password.

Click where it says "advanced options" under the search bar. If you know the date of the article enter a date range. Then in the box where it says "Source" enter the title of the newspaper. If you just want news, under where it says "content type" make sure only the type checked off is newspapers. Then click "Apply." 

Now enter the title of your article enclosed in quotation marks ("...") in the "Search Terms" box. Then hit "Search."

If you don't find your article, try these other ways to search:

  • Go back to the search screen and delete quotation marks out of the article title.
  • Delete any punctuation in the article title, including hyphens, apostrophes, colons, etc.

One further note – when you search for your articles, the results are automatically sorted by date. Click through the pages until you see the dates and newspaper title you need.

Also, LexisNexis has many local newspapers, but the coverage period may be for only the most recent 6 months.
