The CCSF Libraries provides free access to newspaper, magazine and journal article databases.

Refine your search by using Boolean Logic (AND, OR, NOT):
AND narrows a search, though the AND is usually implied (i.e. tourette syndrome AND adolescent). This searches only for items containing both search terms.
OR expands or broadens a search (i.e. GMO OR genetically modified OR transgenic). This searches for either term thus widening the possibilities. This is good for searching using synonyms.
NOT excludes specific terms (i.e. healthy weight gain NOT pregnancy). This would be useful if you wanted to find info about healthy weight gain not related to pregnancy.
