Newspapers are useful for:

  • First accounts of events/issues of social significance;
  • Tracking media coverage of an issue;
  • Determining public opinion and social viewpoints;
  • Provide international and local perspectives on events/issues.

Articles in major newspapers provide current and historical information and perspectives about social issues such as racism as well as specific examples.

Australian and International newspaper resources are accessible via the Newspapers e-resource page
