NewsBank database change: Now only carries 3 TN titles

Our access to NewsBank has changed. We still have limited access but our subscription now provides fulltext access to 3 newspapers only: Chattanooga Free-Times Press, The Commercial Appeal (Memphis), and Knoxville News Sentinel.

Access to these three newspapers is provided to us free as part of the Tennessee Electronic Library initiative. Publication changes and budgetary pressures caused us to take a look at the usage and expense of this valuable, but under-utilized resource.

We hate to see NewsBank go but look forward to offering increased newspaper access when we pick up LexisNexis Academic in November. Stay tuned for more on that soon.
