Finding Trade Press Articles at Fordham University

Having students locate articles in media trade press publications, such as Variety, the Hollywood Reporter, Broadcasting and Cable, and others, is a exercise I like to assign my students, especially when teaching classes on contemporary media industries. It not only introduces them to what members of the media industries read about their industry, but it also exposes students to online research resources beyond simple web searches.

In this video, I demonstrate how to find trade press articles using ProQuest and LexisNexis, two popular research databases available to members of Fordham University and most post-secondary educational institutions.
