Library PressDisplay
In the Library PressDisplay database you'll find news about the election in Germany from newspapers around the world.
To select a particular newspaper, use the menu on the left hand side. Choose the country in which the newspaper is published. Then you get a list the newspapers available in Library PressDisplay. Unfortunately, Library PressDisplay does not contain major German newspapers, such as Die Welt, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Süddeutsche Zeitung, but on the other hand there is a wealth of regional newspapers and magazines. The advantage of Library PressDisplay is that you see the newspaper pages as they are in print.

If you want to read more articles about politics in Germany and the time up to the election, we recommend using the Factiva database.
Factiva covers more one year and has an advanced search function. Several of the major German newspapers are available in Factiva. For example, if you want to see today's coverage of the election in Die Welt, do the following:

  1. Set "Date" to "in the last day"
  2. Use "look up" to find Die Welt and click the title so it appears in a yellow selection under "Source"
  3. For example, search the word Wahl in the search box

Another option is to choose the "News pages" from the topmenu and change the country to Germany.

Danish news coverage
Would you rather read news in Danish about the election and election results in Germany, you can search the Danish newspapers in Infomedia or Børsen.

Access to the newspaper databases
Access is available to CBS students and staff on campus and from home. The databases can also be used when visiting CBS Library Solbjerg Plads.
