Ever hear a story on NPR while you’re on your way to school or work, and then wonder about it later, and want to hear that story again? While NPR and other news websites now do a great job of archiving information on their websites, another great resource that our library uses is Academic Lexis Nexis. Not only does this database have NPR transcripts, but news transcripts from lots of other major broadcast news sources, such as ABC, NBC, Fox, CNN, and the News Hour with Jim Lehrer. To access broadcast news transcripts, follow these easy steps:
- From our Research Resources page, select Academic (Lexis Nexis)
- Now click on “News” on the left-hand side of the page
- Go to the first pull-down box, “Select a News Category,” and choose News Transcripts
- Go to the second pull-down box and select which news transcripts you want (you can also choose “All transcripts” if you don’t know)
- Fill in your search terms and your date range, and click on Search!
That’s it! And remember, you can access this from home if you’re a Highline student, staff or faculty member; all you need is your Highline ID number handy. You can also call the reference desk, email us, or ask us if you’re in the library.
