JOUR 404 -- Feature Writing Online: Article Databases

In-depth article, column and persuasive writing; development of ideas, gathering of materials and writing; special attention to individual interests; exploration of freelance writing markets.


Article Databases

The following databases hosted by Western Libraries should suffice in your research, but if not, we have plenty of others.  Look in the Subject or Alphabetical List area of the Library's homepage.

I recommend using the Advanced Search option whenever available.  It will allow you to retrieve more relevant information.


General newspapers, state, regional, national, global

Specific newspapers

Journal/Magazine Articles

For searching popular magazines (as well as scholarly journals) Ebsco is the best general database. Use the pull down menu to search for specific magazine titles.
