New trial LRC eResource: NewsBank

The LRC is providing access to NewsBank for a trial period from the 12th of April to the 14th of May. NewsBank is an online archive of thousands of newspapers that is easy to use and an excellent resource for all kinds of research. It collects not only the content of physical newspapers, but also web editions, blogs, videos, broadcast transcripts, and much more.

You can also search by topic, and NewsBank will suggest relevant articles and titles that might be useful. Popular topics are suggested on the homepage, including Education, Jobs & Careers, Sports, International Affairs, and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

Major newspapers archived on NewsBank include:

  • The Times
  • The Guardian
  • The Daily Telegraph
  • The Mirror
  • The Independent

And many, many more, including smaller local newspapers like the Liverpool Echo!

You can access NewsBank during this trial period from the E-Resource Directory on the VLE, under the “General” section – or by clicking directly here! (Access for the trial period is in college or on the VDI only.)
