LexisNexis Academic & WiseNews

Library Workshop: LexisNexis Academic & WiseNews

LexisNexis Academic and WiseNews are two primary databases giving full-text access to thousands of newspaper sources around the world. These two databases complement each other in terms of geographic coverage.

LexisNexis Academic contains over 6,000 English language sources, including US and international newspapers, magazines, news wires, and broadcast transcripts.

WiseNews specializes in Chinese language newspapers published in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Macau.

This workshop will demonstrate effective searching of the databases with hands-on exercises.
