Latest news articles


Latest news articles, like other journal articles, are available in article databases subscribed by CityU Library.

Below are some tips to set up alerts or feeds offered by selected news databases available at the Library:

  • Newspaper Source Plus (via EBSCOhost) offers Search and ToC e-mail alerts and RSS feeds for all newspaper publications contained in the database. ProQuest (News and newspapers) offers Search alerts but only provides ToC alerts for selected newspaper publications. Read "New journal articles" of this guide for more about how to keep track of newly published articles. 
  • Personal alerts are not available in Factiva and WiserOne.
