The UMass Amherst Libraries has a subscription to PressReader. PressReader includes the most recent 3-6 months of online newspapers and magazines. Rather than a search engine/index where you retrieve individual articles, it is more like flipping through an entire issue. You can choose magazines/newspapers by topic, language, and/or country of publication. 

eJournals/Publication Finder

On the Library home page, one of the search options is to search for eJournals.

This is a very important tool to use to see if we have access to ejournals. You will need to learn to read the information carefully, because we have different amounts of access depending on our subscription.

If you are used to using Libby/Overdrive to borrow ebooks or audiobooks through the public library system, you should get yourself an ecard from the Boston Public Library. It is free and you can do it online.
