Current Events: Get Real News at Bunn Library

In the era of “fake news”, it’s more important than ever for us to be informed about what’s going on in the world around us. But how do we accomplish that when we are constantly receiving conflicting information from various sources? 

One way to combat the spread of “fake news” is to utilize reputable resources to find your information. Fortunately, as members of the Lawrenceville community, we have access to many of these such sources. 

1. Flipster
Through the Flipster app, you not only have access to lifestyle and entertainment magazines, but also many credible magazines that focus on politics and current events- for example, TIME, The New Yorker, The National Review, The Atlantic, and many more. 
 
With our digital access to The New York Times, members of the Lawrenceville community can keep abreast of current events in real time, from one of the most influential and highly regarded newspapers in the country. **Access is only available on-campus. 

This is the most comprehensive source for theory and research in international affairs. It publishes a wide range of scholarship from 1991 until today that includes working papers from university research institutes, occasional papers series from NGOs (non-governmental organizations), foundation-funded research projects, proceedings from conferences, books, journals and policy briefs. 

4. CQ Researcher  
Appropriate for research on current events. This publication covers the issues of the day with summaries of both fact and opinion. Includes excellent bibliographies.

This database offers valuable international viewpoints on a broad spectrum of global issues, topics, and current events. Featured are hundreds of continuously updated issue and country portals that bring together a variety of specially selected, highly relevant sources for analysis of social, political, military, economic, environmental, health, and cultural issues.

This full-text database provides users with a series of essays and materials from leading political magazines, newspapers, radio and TV news transcripts, primary source documents, and reference books that present the many sides of current issues.
 
This massive collection of periodicals covers a broad range of subject areas. ProQuest includes four basic databases: Platinum Periodicals, ProQuest Newspapers, Reference, and The Historical New York Times. It grants access to current articles featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian & Observer, The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, and so many more. 

Please note: Databases are accessible off-campus to students and staff. If you are off campus, simply click on the database links below as you would if you were on campus.
