To search multiple newspapers at once, chose Advanced Search, put the titles in quotations in the top box with the word OR in between each: "New York Times" OR "Washington Post" OR "wall street journal" and change the adjacent drop-down box to "Publication title - PUB." Next, change the Publication date box to "Last 7 days" or the time period that suits you. The rest is up to you the searcher - to enter a name or topic, etc.
