Newspaper databases

LexisLibrary is the database to use if you are targeting newspaper articles. It contains full text articles from major UK national and local newspapers. 

Why use newspapers?

Newspapers are often discounted as sources of information as they are not 'academic'. However they can be very useful as they provide:

  • Information about local events
  • First-hand accounts of events
  • Current information

Reading quality newspapers is a great way to develop your commercial awareness. In assignments you will often be writing about business models and theories and information from newspapers can illustrate how these models and frameworks are put into practice.
