Check out the publications listed below to find an article for you to use for your "Physics in the News" assignment. Note that some publications may have a limit on how much content may be accessed for free...get in touch with your librarian if you have questions about that.
Considerations to remember: you're looking for articles on a particular topic, so use that topic to help you determine your search terms. You may find it helpful to do some exploratory searching to find more information on your topic to help you figure out what keywords to use to search for your topic so that you can find terms for key names, tools, individuals, etc.
Below are links to specific publication accessible through a Collins Library subscription, so the interface looks more 'database-esque' than public facing. You'll typically need to look for a 'search within this publication' link to make sure that you're searching for content only within that particular publication. Fortunately, most have useful features to allow you to filter by date!
Not to sure what search terms to use for your topic? You may want to start your search for background information by looking up your general topic (such as 'particle physics' or 'semiconductors') in Gale Virtual Reference Library which includes the full text of over 100 encyclopedias, including the Mcgraw-Hill Dictionary of Science and Technology.
