Changes in Newspaper Databases
As of March 31st, NewsBank's America's Newspapers and Access World News will no longer be available. In 2009, NewsBank lost the rights to provide access to Gannett publications, including the Des Moines Register, which had been accessible through America's Newspapers. The Library has redirected funds to making the Register available on the ProQuest platform. It appears on the Databases A - Z list as Des Moines Register. Other databases with varied national and international news content to which the Library subscribes include Ethnic Newswatch, LexisNexis Academic, Newspaper Source, and PressDisplay. The Library also subscribes to the New York Times (1851-2006): ProQuest Historical Newspapers.
