Access to free online news sites from Brazil:

We have access to a selection of Portuguese and Brazilian language newspapers through the databases Nexis and Factiva. These are text-only news aggregation databases, so it's not possible to browse as you would a news website.

If you already have the title of a specific article, you can simply paste it into the search box in either database. Alternatively you can do keyword searches on a topic. 

If you prefer to browse articles from a particular newspaper, please follow the instructions in the document below on how to do this using the Nexis platform:

Examples of Brazilian newspapers available via Nexis:

O Estado de São Paulo (also known as Estadão)
O Globo
Folha de São Paulo
