  • Some newspapers are available in on-line formats—You can look up newspapers in the "Journal List" to see if the library has the paper in print and/or on-line version.

Some newspapers, like The Christian Science Monitor, are considered authoritative on subjects like international affairs. The New York Times is considered the newspaper of record for the United States.
