Here are three suggestions.

1. You can find letters to the editor from many newspapers in the LexisNexis Academic database.

Here are instructions for searching:

  • then select “L” and LexisNexis Academic from the A-Z list
  • If you are off campus, you will be prompted to enter your last name and barcode.
  • Search by entering the article title in quotation marks and ("letter to the editor" OR editorial) in the search box on the left titled "Search the News". 

2. Another option is to search for the article title and ("letter to the editor" OR editorial) in Google Scholar. If you link to Google Scholar through the library, you will find links on the right to FullText@HealeyLibrary.

3. If you know Journal that you want to search you can go to ejournals.  

Ejournal Search

  • Then select Ejournals in the center of the page.
  • Search for the journal title (not the article title) to see if Healey Library has an online copy of the journal. 
  • Check the citation to be sure it covers the dates you need.
  • Then link to ejournal by clicking a link beneath the title.
  • You will need a barcode to access the journal if you are off-campus.
  • Then you can search for your article or topic.
