Local newspapers are usually your best bet for finding news articles about your area. We have a database called Access World News that allows you to search newspapers all over the world or just those in California. Here's what you'll need to do:

  1. Go to the library's Web site
  2. Click on Articles & Databases
  3. Select Access World News (NewsBank) from the alphabetically-arranged list of databases (If you're accessing the database from home, you'll need to log in using your MJC id without the W and your six-digit birthdate)
  4. Once you're in the databases click on USA - California
  5. Now you're ready to create your search. I'm attaching an image of the search I just ran that seemed successful. Search Lead/First Paragraph for the word homeless and All Text for the word stanislaus

Please let me know if you have any problems with this or need more help.
