Why should you use it?
The New York Times has content back to 1851 with news about major and minor events during this period. This allows for a historical overview of many topics as well as an opportunity to research events in-depth. The New York Times also creates many special reports and multimedia features which provide deep analyses about specific topics.
Who should use it?
Everyone! The New York Times provides news, analyses, and reports about a plethora of topics.
Why use a database?
When you use a specific database, rather than a search engine or discovery tool, you often can find more relevant sources. For example, subject databases include sources about that subject only, rather than a general search engine or discovery tool that includes information about everything. This way you don’t have to wade through thousands of irrelevant results!
