Finding News Transcripts in LexisNexis Academic

  • LexisNexis Academic indexes television transcripts from numerous news and media sources, from MSNBC to NPR, to the Congressional court hearings (usually broadcast on CSPAN).
  • Tips to keep in mind when you are searching:

o    Usually the transcript is for the entire show, not just the individual segment of the television show.  The keywords will be highlighted in red and should lead you to that segment you're looking for.

o    The transcript titles themselves can be very generic, such as the name of the show and the date.  Click into them and scan the article to see if it's relevant.

o    If the search results are overwhelming, narrow them down by selecting the type of News Transcript from the left hand side. (See Step 3). This will help to filter the responses.

Step 1: Select Search by Content Type on the right side of the screen in LexisNexis, then choose “broadcast transcripts” from the dropdown menu.
