Each issue of every newspaper is indexed thoroughly, so researchers have access to top news stories and to detailed information on sports, business, and the arts around the world. Citations and abstracts are available for all articles saving researchers time. The indexing covers not only complete bibliographic information but also companies, people, products, etc.

    Please note : ProQuest does not give you access to a digital copy of a newspaper, but rather the full text of articles with citations and abstracts. The articles of some newspapers that otherwise require a subscription to view (e.g. The Times in the UK) are available on the Proquest database.
