Get newspaper articles in full text


Newsbank - it's like having a bank full of newspapers. Some people would rather have access to a more traditional bank i.e. full of money- but when you need to find reporting of important events throughout history Newsbank comes into its own.

Australian and international papers are included in this new library database subscription for JCU.

Available to JCU staff and students from on-campus and off-campus at: http://elibrary.jcu.edu.au/login?url=http://infoweb.newsbank.com/ or via links in Tropicat (the library catalogue) or library databases list.

NewsBank is a web-based TEXT service providing national, international, regional, and local newspapers from across Australia and New Zealand as well as Asia, the UK, Europe and the United States. Includes The Cairns Post and Townsville Bulletin along with other North Queensland news papers.

For each newspaper, the full-text of all staff-written news stories is included, and complemented by additional sections, such as obituaries, literary criticism, people, editorial pieces, book/film/art reviews, and more. Notices, classifieds, pictures, and paid advertisements are excluded.
