Global Breaking Newswires New

Global Breaking Newswires provides timely access to newswire content from around the globe as well as growing archive of news.

For search tips and help resources visit: http://proquest.libguides.com/proquestplatform/basic

Overview

Global Breaking Newswires is an aggregated full-text news database with very timely access to the best newswire content available globally. Updated three times per day, it is a continually-growing archive of news content that may not be captured via traditional print sources or online sources.

The ability to provide rich and authoritative news content that includes non-English language, non-traditional content sources has become vital in a digital news market where physical borders do not exist and traditional print sources cannot keep up. Global Breaking Newswires helps researchers see how news stories unfold across various news sources, an integral part of understanding the full story as newswires are often the only reliable news sources in several regions throughout the world.

This database includes the top newswire services from around the world, including the AP, Dow Jones Industrial News, dpa, AFP, Canadian Press, and others—making it a great complement to any of the ProQuest Newsstream products. The wires are available in various languages including Arabic, French, Italian, and German.

Historic North Carolina Digital Newspaper Collection

Newspapers.com North Carolina Collection. 3.5 million pages of digitized content from over 1,000 NC county newspapers.

For search tips and help resources visit: https://proquest.libguides.com/newspapersdotcom/search

Overview

Includes:
  • The Franklin Press (1888–1906)
Some historic newspapers are digitized at the page-level, while others are digitized at the article level. The basic searching function is identical for both article-level and page-level. Every part of every page of ProQuest Historical Newspapers is full-text searchable, whether they are digitized at the article-level or page-level. If you search for a term such as the name “John Kennedy” and it appears in the text any place on a page, it will generate a hit for that page—whether it is in an article title, in an article, in an advertisement, etc.

The primary difference in searching article-level titles is in the Advanced Search: because they include article-level metadata, newspapers digitized at the article-level provide users with the ability to restrict search results to different portions of the newspaper (articles, advertisements, cartoons, etc.).
