Today's Newspapers

Clip art of a calendarTo read articles from today's newspapers, you could go to newspaper websites...  but you might hit a paywall. Most newspapers will only show you a few articles if you don't have a subscription.

So, instead of going to newspaper websites to read today's articles, use the library databases, such as Factiva, Nexis Uni, or Newspaper Source Plus. They contain the same articles that you'd see on newspaper websites, and you can access them with your UMW username and password.

Newspapers in print

Simpson Library has print subscriptions to several newspapers, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Free Lance-Star, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Financial Times, and Barron's. We provide today's papers and several months of back issues. Find the newspapers on the first floor of the library, to the right of the stairs, near the back wall.

Come to the library, sit in a comfy chair, and read the paper the old-fashioned way!
