Question: What value lies in news sources? Why would a researcher choose a newspaper or magazine over a book or scholarly journal article?
Answer: News sources can be great resources for local information. They can supply names, dates, facts and figures, along with quotes. Ultimately, news sources are valuable for their immediacy, recording events as they happen.
Looking for local/regional news sources (newspapers, magazines, news blogs, etc.)? Try these first.
