IUB Libraries News Sources

Internet News Sources

  Google News

Google News is a computer-generated news site that aggregates headlines from more than 50,000 news sources worldwide. The articles are selected and ranked by computers that evaluate, among other things, how often and on what sites a story appears online. It also ranks based on certain characteristics of news content such as freshness, location, relevance, and diversity. The time or date displayed next to an article reflects when the article was added to Google News. Google News includes articles that have been crawled within the last 30 days. If you're looking for older news coverage, try the News Archive Search.
