Using Factiva for the News

An easy way to keep up with what’s happening in national news, world news, or even industry news, is to use Factiva. Factiva is not just a database for searching for news articles, it is also a great current news source, providing access to the daily news from major newspapers around the world.

The link above will take you directly to the Factiva news pages, but if you are navigating from elsewhere in Factiva and want to get back to the news, you can use the News Pages tab.

If you are interested in a particular country’s or industry’s news, you can find a list of various choices for those from a box in the upper left corner. Most news sources for different countries will appear in that country’s native language, which can be a great chance to practice your language skills!

One final useful feature of Factiva’s news is the Editor’s choice option. These are industry news channels that are meant to give a brief overview of the current state of certain industries (25 in all). They feature 10-15 news articles per week selected by industry experts on Factiva’s editorial team. These are a fantastic way to stay on top of the news and trends in a certain industry. You can find the Editor’s Choice by clicking on the gear in the upper right-hand corner of a page.
