Text Mining Newspapers

Text mining of newspapers is now available through ProQuest's TDM Studio online service. This offers access to almost all sources in Global Newsstream, ProQuest Historical Newspapers and ProQuest Dissertations & Theses. Our other news sources either don't allow text mining or have conditions on access. 

Learn more about TDM Studio on our guide.
