Vu/Text is a database vendor which provides access to the full text of over 25 daily U.S. newspapers, including the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Boston Globe, the Detroit Free Press, and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Searching with a combination of words (which may be limited to specific sections, such as sports or the business news) allows one to identify small articles about regional companies or personal names found in the society column. This service includes many newspapers not available at Duke. New papers are being added each year. Vu/Text also carries full texts of news services, such as the Associated Press, and public relations releases on the PR Newswire and Mediawire. Foreign newspapers (Financial Times, Asahi News Service, TASS, the Guardian, BBC) are available through the World Reporter system.
Ask at the Reference Desk for a complete and current list of newspapers and wire services (AP, UPI) which can be searched online.
