An extensive global, yet local record
Usage statistics show that students use locally published and in-state news sources more than any other. Such news sources—which form a written history of events as they occur—are the core of Access World News: Research Collection. They compose a unique record of people, issues and events as perceived by local communities across the U.S. and around the world. The authoritative content and first-person perspectives found in these sources meet a variety of research and classroom needs. Students benefit from analysis of multiple perspectives from newspapers, magazines, broadcast transcripts, newswires, news videos and journalist-written blogs.
Providing easy access to over 219 million current and archived articles, Access World News: Research Collection enables faculty and students alike to maximize their research potential. The collection’s unmatched depth and comprehensive coverage simplifies background research, comparative and content analysis; class discussions; speeches, debates and research papers; tracking an event or topic over time; and comparing issues both chronologically and geographically.
Enhanced interface and search navigators
With NewsBank's intuitive interface and powerful search capabilities, students of all levels can pinpoint useful information and navigate quickly and efficiently through millions of articles—all without any special training. The capability to sort and group results by date, location, source type and more makes it easy to compare and contrast perspectives, discern patterns and trends and track information. Other benefits include citation exporting tools, map-based searching and more.
