Newspapers are often overlooked as excellent sources of information. They are especially invaluable when tracking a breaking news story. Newspapers are considered primary sources of information, since they give eyewitness accounts of news stories and track historical events as they actually happen.

It is important when looking up any information in a newspaper or on an online news service that you can pinpoint the date that an event has occurred. To do this you can use a variety of reference tools. Among these reference tools are almanacs and encyclopedias. Always consult an almanac, encyclopedia or other pertinent reference works to establish an exact date(s) and the spelling of an individual's name if you are uncertain.
