Ireland: News Sources

Foreign newspaper content may be available

  • through subscription databases ( usually not full newspaper, but selective and/or print-only);
  • in a film05a microfilm archive;
  • free (but frequently edited and/or reformatted) on a newspaper’s website; or
  • for purchase on the site, on an article-by-article basis, discoverable through a freely searchable archive.


The online database newspaper content available to BU students, staff and faculty is listed below by provider and requires login. Please note that coverage and content changes frequently; the lists are accurate as of May 2014.

Why doesn't BU subscribe to individual foreign newspapers?
Most foreign newspapers do not have digital institutional subscriptions. Print is expensive and can take up to 6 weeks to arrive, and newsprint is not easily archived.
