How To: Use Access World News


NewsBank brings together newspaper
articles,
news videos, transcripts, and online-only
sources like blogs.
That collection becomes a powerful
research tool.
NewsBank’s resource Access World News
allows you to do just that,
access news from around the globe by
searching sources from the other side of
the world
or those in your own backyard. Using
thousands of diverse new sources
allows you to track issues, find
information on people or events,
and look for articles that contain a
certain keyword or phrase.
Here’s an example: In your economics
class

States is headed toward another
recession

Let’s refine the search to focus on
the United States. Return to the search
fields near the top of the page.
