Most major newspapers today publish articles both in print and online. While it may be easy to find a newspaper's website and browse the headlines, it is not always free to read articles online. Many newspaper websites are paywalled, meaning that only paying subscribers can access all articles in full.
As an alternative, many newspapers are available through library databases. The look and feel is different, but you can read all the same articles without having to pay for a newspaper subscription. Newspapers can be found in several different library collections. Access World News (sometimes called Newsbank) is one of CofC's biggest newspaper collections. All the UK dailies below can be read in Access World News, so you can read them without having to learn multiple interfaces.
PressReader is a digital platform for reading newspapers and magazines. It is designed to mimic reading a print publication, By installing the PressReader app on your mobile device and adding these newspapers to your Favorites, you can quickly scan these papers each day and read any articles that interest you.

The Access World News landing page for each paper is linked below. You may be prompted to authenticate using your CofC credentials.
You can browse issues by date or search by keyword/article title. Articles from the most recent issue of a newspaper should be available in Access World News almost as quickly as they appear on the newspaper website, but you may notice a lag in some cases. If that is happening, you can always browse the newspaper website to see which articles interest you, and then read them once they become available in Access World News.
Except for The Guardian, these sites are paywalled. You may be able to read an article or two, but that's all unless you register and subscribe. Most of these sites also show intrusive pop-up advertising to non-subscribers.
You may find it more convenient to download the PressReader app (available in the Apple, Google Play, and Microsoft app stores).
