Key Library Resources for Journalism: Welcome!

NEW!! Princeton now subcribes to "Puck News"

Puck News purports to "create a brand focused on the inside conversation—the story behind the story, the details and plot that only the true insiders knew."

Princeton has a subscription to NEWSGUARD

NewsGuard is a tool that shows you trust ratings for more than 7,000 news and information websites as you browse the internet. It is installed as a browser extension that works within your internet browser as you search for news and information online. Access instructions for setup here.

AP Stylebook

AP Stylebook Online is a searchable, customizable guide for writers and editors that is updated throughout the year.

Your subscription includes the popular Ask the Editor feature, where you can ask your own questions and search thousands of past answers, and Topical Guides, offering guidance to help you write about events in the news.




Dear JRN faculty and students,

The resources I've pulled together for this guide will be helpful to get you started on your research; however, to search the complete selection of databases provided by the Library, please consult the Library Web Page. Also:

  • Lexis Nexis Public Records Database, aka "Nosey Nexis," for Journalism faculty and students. The copyright agreement stipulates that I  perform the actual searches, so please feel free to email me to set up an appointment!
  • For PACER/court records or any specific legal questions please email the law librarian, David Hollander ( or simply make an appointment with him via WASS. Also, for SEC/property records or anything finacially oriented, contact the financial data librarian Bobbi (

Happy researching!
