Using  Factiva 
Do this quick online tutorial: Search the Factiva News Database

Factiva is the major Library resource for international news coverage.
If you don't find enough articles you could try searching the 'full text' instead of the default 'headline and lead paragraph'

For more tips on how to effectively search Factiva check out the Factiva YouTube channel

Problems connecting to Factiva
You may find at times that you cannot connect to Factiva. This is because the Library has a license for only a limited number of simultaneous users. If you cannot access Factiva try again a few minutes later.

Some newspapers are only available on microfilm prior to the most recent 3 months.
