Database Spotlight...

You will no doubt be pleased to make the acquaintance of World Access News (also known in some circles as NewsBank.) The New York Times, the Washington Post, and 38 Pennsylvania newspapers including the Butler Eagle (back to 2005) are available in this database, along with weekly news magazines and worldwide news coverage not available elsewhere. The official description: "Full-text content of local and regional newspapers, each with its own diverse viewpoints on local, regional and world issues." You can save searches and create a customized folder.

Among its many fine features are NewsBank Special Reports on topical issues. Librarian Jessica Marshall points out the current special report on School and College Security Issues.
This was a trial database in December and has now been added to our ever-growing list of helpful online resources. Want to see what else we have for news searches? Check it out...
