More News You Can Use

Back in December, 2007, I introduced readers to America's Newspapers from Newsbank, a subscription-based online resource available for free to Fauquier County Public Library card holders and users.

Since then, there have been a number of improvements made to this news resource, including the addition of over 900 regional newspapers, including the Culpeper Star-Exponent and the Winchester Star (previously we just had access to five papers -the Baltimore Sun, Philadelphia Enquirer, Washington Post, Washington Times and Richmond Times-Dispatch), as well as video news segments from sources like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report and the NBA and NHL.
To access America's Newspapers from Newsbank from home, visit the library's Web site (listed under Find Information > Search for Articles & More) and enter your 10-digit library card.
