Searching newspaper articles from specific countries


[intro music]>>NARRATOR: In the course of your research
or for a course assignment, you may need to search for newspaper articles published from
WITHIN specific countries.>>NARRATOR: This tutorial will demonstrate
how to search such newspaper articles using Lexis Nexis Academic, an excellent resource
that contains full text newspaper articles from major U.S. newspapers, smaller U.S cities,
international newspapers and trade newspapers.>>NARRATOR: Lexis Nexis Academic has newspapers
in Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Dutch and Italian; however there are also English
language publications from a number of countries outside the United States.>>NARRATOR: The database is updated daily
so you can find very recent articles, and it is more convenient to search one database
rather than all over the web.>>NARRATOR: In this search, we will locate
an article from Newspapers in Mexico.>>NARRATOR: Begin by clicking the Browse
link at the top of the page.>>NARRATOR: From the country drop down, select
Mexico>>NARRATOR: Click News>>NARRATOR: Then click Newspapers>>NARRATOR: To learn more about a particular
newspaper, click the icon to the left of the newspaper name to open a window with information
about the publication, including the date range of available articles.>>NARRATOR: Click the newspaper names you
would like to add to the search. For this example we will select all 9 newspapers.>>NARRATOR: Click the Ok-Continue button>>NARRATOR: Enter your search terms, for
this example we will use the following: Mexico and mujeres and empleo and salarios.>>NARRATOR: Remember to use the correct Boolean
operator when entering your search terms. Here is a quick recap of how they work:>>NARRATOR: AND requires all terms to be
present in each record in the results. Use AND to narrow your search.>>NARRATOR: OR allows either word to be present
in each record in the results. Use OR to expand your search.>>NARRATOR: NOT requires the first word be
present in each record in the results, but only if the record does not contain the second
word. Use the NOT operator cautiously, as it will also eliminate records that discuss
both relevant and unrelated topics.>>NARRATOR: Search results are limited to
3,000 records, so it is a good idea to first constrain the date range of your search by
clicking the Advanced Options link below the search box.>>NARRATOR: For our search we will select
the last month.>>NARRATOR: Click the Apply button, then
click the Search button.>>NARRATOR: From the results list, click
the title of an article to view the full text.>>NARRATOR: The icons in the upper right
hand corner allow you to print, e-mail, download or export the article to a citation management
software such as RefWorks.>>NARRATOR: This concludes the tutorial.
