Newsstream – a new way to look for news content

From 1 March 2020, you will be able to search across over 600 newspaper titles and news broadcast outlets at the same time by using Newsstream via your library’s subscriptions.  Newsstream will be replacing our current news database, Lexis UK Newspapers. The library will continue to subscribe to other Lexis products as usual.

We’re particularly excited about this new database because – in addition to giving access to national and regional UK newspapers like The Sunderland Echo, The Newcastle Chronicle, The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Observer and The Independent –  it offers access to international newspaper titles like  The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Bangkok Post, South China Morning Post, Asian Wall Street Journal, and the Jerusalem Post.

Newsstream also gives you access to the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal, which students and academic staff in Business have been requesting for a long time. You’ll also find some video and audio news coverage. Newsstream means no more paywalls or individual subscriptions for you, and new content should be added on a daily basis. More on Newsstream.

If you would like to learn some tips and tricks for searching in Newsstream, have a look at this guide on getting started.  If you’re not able to access Newsstream, please contact us immediately so we can troubleshoot any problems.

For a bespoke training on how to use Newsstream for research, members of academic staff can arrange for their liaison librarian to lead a workshop for a module or programme. Students who would like a personal introduction to Newsstream can book a 121 appointment with a member of staff by filling in this form.

Newsstream isn’t the only way to research what is being talked about in the news. Have a look at this guide on news websites to discover more ways.

Your liaison librarian is here to help you get the most out of the library’s subscriptions. Please be in touch with them if you would like to know more and to let us know what you think of this new product.
