Foreign Language News: Databases

Locate current foreign language newspapers through K-State Libraries using these databases.

Fall 2019 Update: Nexis Uni was our primary databases for international, foreign-language news. We canceled Nexis Uni as part of our Spring 2019 serials cancelations due to budget reductions and the serials crisis.

We are subscribing to two alternative databases through ProQuest. As of November 10, 2019, those titles appear as, Canadian Newsstream and International Newsstream, which cover foreign language titles, but not the exact same as Nexis Uni.

Details about using Search It are provided below.

Library Databases

Search It no longer displays articles from the Nexis Uni database (formerly Lexis Nexis Academic.) Search Nexis Uni directly to find the most complete collection of newspapers, both in English and other languages.
