National U.S. News articles

Newspapers are not considered scholarly, but they provide immediate reporting of events.  National newspapers have research staffs and journalists whose insightful analyses of the news can explain pros and cons, show chronologies, describe major players, provide background/context/history, and/or lay out data in easily understood formats.

 For the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Christian Science Monitor, use the links at this UCI Libraries' Subject Guide:

U.S. Newspapers

State & Local U.S. News articles

State and local newspapers may report on Southeast Asian American events, businesses, personalities, and organizations in their geographic areas.  The Los Angeles Times is a national newspaper that reports on Southeast Asian Americans in California, especially given the critical mass of Vietnamese in Orange County, Cambodians in Long Beach, and Hmong in Fresno, for example.  Likewise, there are communities of Hmong in Minnesota and Wisconsin, so news coverage in those states will include these groups. 

The newspapers in Access World News may be searched from off-campus only by currently-enrolled UCI students, faculty, and staff:
