Database Trials: Access World News (News Bank) and America’s Historical Newspapers

acessworldnewsBetween now and March 28th, Reynolds Libraries is evaluating two databases: Access World News and America’s
Historical Newspapers.

Access World News, which also often called NewsBank, focuses on current newspaper sources and includes access to relevant local content like the Richmond Times Dispatch.  NewsBank  really focuses on students using its content, so you may be able to find a great article in a simpler and more intuitive manner.  

 America’s Historical Newspapers offers historical newspaper articles as they appeared in print.  Users can browse by era or search by specific publication source like the New York Times.  This might be a great place for finding primary sources.  The bottom line: take a look, mosey around, and  let us know what you think!
