Finding Primary Sources - History: Newspapers


*If you're accessing the newspaper databases from off-campus you'll be asked to log in using your TCC credentials.


Newspaper articles are only primary sources if they were written within the time the event took place.

An article written about a past event is not a primary source about that event.

Research Tip

Know the date or time frame of the event you are researching. Dates are a great way to quickly filter a search.
