EES1128 Biophysical Interactions in Managed Environment

Why use News sources

News sites and newspapers may be useful for finding information about site history

Newspapers may also help you get some ideas about what major governmental and other organizations will be interested in the clean up.  Some questions you may ask include (but are not limited to):

  • What municipalities/provinces/states/countries are affected?
  • Did a specific NGO (non-governmental organization) get involved in clean up? What about government departments?
  • What companies or organizations caused the mess?

How do I choose the best news database for my search?  Look at the resources provided on this page.  They are divided by geography (Canadian sources or international sources) and time (current or historical.)  Decide what resource is most likely to be relevant to your topic (current Canadian?  Historical international?) and search it.
