Wonding what's going on in West Palm Beach or Bowling Green, Kentucky? What about Sao Paulo, Brazil? or New Dehli, India? You can now find news sources from all over the world in Access World News, which contains local, regional, and national U.S. newspapers as well as full-text content of key international sources including newspapers, magazines, broadcast transcripts, newswires, and news videos.

DePaul's interface offers shortcuts to local news sources, like the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, and the Redeye, as well as key national papers, such as the New York Times, and the Washington Post. Access World News offers an easy to use keyword search for these individual titles, or you can browse issues by date, giving users an alternative to Lexis Nexis. And once you find an article you like, it is a snap to email yourself the full text, print it out, or export the citation information.

If you are looking for international news, you can use the interactive world map to choose a continent of interest, and then drill down to the country, state, and city level to browse local news sources in Egypt, Zimbabwe, or Bangladesh.
