February Newsbank


NEWSBANK SPECIAL REPORTS
February 2013 - Update

NewsBank’s Special Reports are news articles, images, videos and other useful content grouped for convenience under specific topics and themes. Easily accessible within NewsBank resources, they enable users to quickly locate information on a specific subject while helping them gain better insight into current issues and events on a global scale. Each Report features current and retrospective coverage, and new articles are added daily. Special Reports constitute a unique value to your users, and are included with your NewsBank subscription. There are over 50 Reports to be sure the information you need is always available.

All Special Reports are accessed from the left side bar on your online resource menu page at infoweb.newsbank.com, on search screens and the Other NewsBank Products link in full-text newspaper products. We suggest adding a link to these Reports on your library webpage under all relevant subject areas.

Following is a listing of some of the Special Reports that may be of particular interest to you at this time.

Watch for the release of additional current events and issues featured throughout the month as news happens.
