Factiva - News and information from round the world




Find out what is happening in Australia and internationally with Factiva, writes David Horne, Subject Librarian for Business and Economics.


Factiva is an invaluable tool for keeping up to date with current and business affairs in a particular part of the world, for investigating past events, or for studying the way news is reported.  It is a database of over 30,000 news sources, encompassing print, electronic media transcripts and free Web-based publications.  Content is added daily.

Australian coverage includes not only the major city and national papers, such as The Australian and The Australian Financial Review, but regional and local newspapers.

Search results can be readily sorted by date, or filtered according to a range of criteria, including source, article author, company, industry, and region. The articles from print publications do not include images.

While the key content is news, Factiva also provides brief company and industry profiles and global financial market data.
