Database Use Tip: Non-English Language Newspapers in LexisNexis Academic

In addition to full-text coverage of major U.S. domestic and international (English language) newspapers, LexisNexis Academic also includes non-english language news sources for Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish. Titles include: Le Figaro (1997 - present); Le Monde (2006 - present); Der Spiegel (1999 - present); Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (1993 - present); Die Welt (2003 - present); El Pais (Spain, 1996 - present); El Universal (Mexico, 2002 - present); and La Nacion (Argentina, 2002 - present).

Go to the Guided News Search, choose 'Non-English Language News,' and then select from the list of languages. Click on 'Source List' to see a list of included titles for each language. When searching, ignore all accents marks and diacritics, with the exception of German, which requires the addition of an "e" to vowels with umlauts.

[FIND LexisNexis Academic on the "Databases by Subject" List, under Business and Management, Social Sciences, and General Resources. Lexis is the first option on the General Resources list.]
