NewsBank Offer

WSL Offers Newspaper Content from NewsBank:

The Washington State Library, a division of the Office of the Secretary of State, in cooperation with NewsBank, Inc., is pleased to provide the Access World News Research Collection.

This collection, the most comprehensive news product NewsBank offers, comprises over 11,000 news sources from around the world. It features 134 sources from Washington State alone, content from all 50 U.S. states and over 170 countries and regions. The vast majority of sources are in English but at least 10 other languages are represented. The collection also contains The Seattle Times Integrated Solution (1985 – present), consisting of full-color newspaper pages, individual full-text articles and content only published online. Access also includes NewsBank’s Special Reports and Americas News Magazines.

The Access World News Research Collection content was offered at no cost to Washington’s nonprofit public, academic, CTC (Community & Technical College) and public school libraries from September 1, 2018 through December 31, 2020.

From September 1, 2018 through December 31, 2020, cost for content access was underwritten by the Washington State Library, using federal LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) funds made available by IMLS (the Institute from Museum and Library Service). At any point during this timeframe, libraries had the option to enter into individual subscription agreements with NewsBank.
