Lexis Nexis News Search

The easiest way to find a news article within a specificed date range in Lexis Nexis  is to use the "Advanced" options. 

There you will see options to specify a date range as well as an option to limit your search to only "Newspapers". After you have specified your date range and content type click on the "Apply" button in the bottom right corner.

You are now ready to enter your search terms in the search bar. But remember good results only come if you use good keywords! For example, rather than just searching for "Indian cinema" or "Bollywood", you may want to try searching for specific films, actors, directors, movie studios, etc.
