Using Newspapers in Research

As a reminder, you cannot cite newspaper articles as references in your Planet Paper.  However, you may find it helpful to do some preliminary searching on your topic in newspaper articles.  Newspaper articles are generally written in language that's easy to understand and you may find ideas for further research that you can then explore in peer-reviewed articles or books.  Below are some resources for accessing newspapers via KCC Library.
