Find Editorials: Using Library Databases

What is an editorial?

You may be required to use editorials for your assignments.  An editorial is a newspaper or magazine article that gives an opinion on a topical issue and is written by, or on behalf of, an editor.  Included here is a list of databases to which the library subscribes that contain citations to and, in some cases, full-text of editorials.  Follow the directions for each on how to limit your search.
