A few newspaper sources

At Warwick, the most up to date online newspaper subscriptions we have are through Factiva: some titles do have a delay period before they become available to us there, but not all. If you are interested in searching newspapers from the past or want a link to Factiva then this link should prove helpful: http://webcat.warwick.ac.uk/search~S1/v?news+and+newspapers

In terms of free, online news sources, I like the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/) and the Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/). Some other sites which folks might want to look at are: the Independent: http://www.independent.co.uk/ and World News: http://wn.com/

It seems to me that using Google Reader is rather like creating your own newspaper, subscribing to RSS feeds and then watching the headlines to see if there is anything that you want to read. Many news sites will offer you RSS feeds, so you can build your own. If you don’t know about RSS feed readers then you could sign up for the “23 Things for the Digital Professional” course (registration open until midnight on 23 Oct, 2011), as that is one of the things to be covered: http://blogs.warwick.ac.uk/rex23phd11/
