The most current news at your fingertips

ProQuest news content is updated each day. Researchers have access to hundreds of full-text newspapers on the ProQuest interface with same day publication access to over 250 titles.

Best resource for U.S. and international major news titles

Global Newsstream offers superior access to current, full-text newspapers with longer backfile and/or more timely access to The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and Los Angeles Times as well as over 80 Gannett regional and local titles. Titles can be searched together or separately for maximum researcher efficiency.

Cross searchability enhances researcher output

Global Newsstream is fully cross searchable with other essential ProQuest products including the ABI/INFORM Collection, Historical Newspapers, and all other databases an institution accesses via the ProQuest platform, giving researchers the latest news to complement their topic research. ProQuest has digitized major titles from around the globe from the first issue forward, which are available through a Historical Newspapers subscription – and when combined with Global Newsstream, offers unrivalled coverage from earliest issues to current day.

Maximize researchers’ time

Global Newsstream features detailed indexing to help researchers quickly find the news information they need as well as track news events over time or at location of origin. The indexing covers not only complete bibliographic information but also subjects, companies, people, products, and geographic areas. Each issue of every newspaper is indexed thoroughly, so users have access to not only top news stories but also detailed information on the arts, sports, business, and popular culture. Even such items as editorials, editorial cartoons, obituaries, and letters to the editor from well-known people are indexed.

User-friendly and precise searching experience

The ProQuest interface offers additional features for a user-friendly and precise searching experience including:

  • Ability to narrow searches by date, multiple fields, and document types
  • Spell check
  • Abstracts for every newspaper article
  • On demand article translation in 13 different languages
  • Multi-lingual interface (18 languages available)
  • Text-to-speech capability
  • OpenURL compliancy
