Mining Current News

New York Times Developer's Network
"All the API's to fit to post." NYTimes APIs are for non-commercial use. You will need to set up an account. Consult their FAQ for more details.

Many popular current news sources do not allow automated searches. The terms of use for these sources prohibits downloading large volumes of text to be stored and analyzed.

Below is a selected list of library subscription news sources which prohibit text and data mining through their search interface:

  • EBSCO
  • Factiva
  • NexisUni
  • ProQuest*

Violating a resource's terms of use is a violation of the University's Responsible Use of Computing policy. For more details consult the Statement on Appropriate Use of Electronic Resources.

When using any resource remember to consult its Terms of Use. For more help, please contact datahelp@gmu.edu, or talk to your subject librarian.
