News happens everywhere, from small towns to big cities across the United States. America’s News enables researchers to pinpoint information on people, issues and events in the local area or around the country. This comprehensive resource offers tens of millions of current and archived articles and video clips from news sources nationwide in a single, fully searchable online database. It includes the complete electronic editions of more than 1,500 U.S. news sources—with 75% of these sources not available in any other library database.
An ideal resource for many types of research
Librarians recognize newspaper collections as a valuable and widely used resource. America’s News provides students and faculty with authoritative, staff-written coverage of local and national topics, along with specific articles, obituaries, statistics, quotations, facts, analysis and much more. With unlimited access to America’s News from all library workstations—and remote access 24/7 for most titles—users can freely search, browse, print, save and email full-text articles without a per-article fee. Beyond, America’s News can be enhanced with the addition of a variety of specialized, cross-searchable news and information resources that address specific areas of interest.
Customizable, map-based interface
America’s News features an intuitive interface that lets students and faculty use a U.S. map to quickly select and search one or more local news sources, a group of titles across a state or region, specific papers nationwide or the entire collection. This interface can be customized to reflect the library's needs, ensuring that students and faculty can easily access specific news sources in the library’s collection. Also, users are provided with multiple search options that sort and group results by date, location, source type and more. Combined with NewsBank’s powerful search engine and unmatched content, these robust tools enable researchers at every level to find the information and answers they require.
New product enhancements
America’s News now supports spell checking and correction for search terms, enabling users to easily discover misspellings and choose correct words or phrases. Additionally, there are two versions of the interface, one in English and the other in Spanish—an ideal feature for Spanish speakers or students of a second language. America’s News offers MARC records that enable librarians to link directly to each newspaper’s search page, along with OpenURLs.
