Value in Reading Recent Newspapers

While newspapers are not considered a scholarly source, they can be a good resource for up-to-date statistics and comments on current policies or those under consideration.  Because of the wide range of newspapers offered in the different databases, it is possible to compare one state to another, or nations around the world.

They also provide the names of legislators and committees that are addressing issues of interest, supplying names and keywords for use in searching agency websites and other databases.
