e-Resource of the Month: America's Newspapers/Newsbank

While many newspapers, including the Washington Post and the New York Times, have online editions of their newspapers available for free via the Internet, access often requires registration and the acceptance of targeted online advertising. In addition, in some cases the archives (articles older than say, two weeks) are only available for a fee. With your Fauquier County Public Library card, you can access more than 1000 regional and national newspapers, ad-free, including their archives, through America's Newspapers from Newsbank.

Coverage includes:
  • Baltimore Sun — from 9/1990 - current
  • Culpeper Star-Exponent -  from 3/2007 - current
  • Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star - from 1/2004 - current
  • New York Times — from 1/2000 - current (includes the New York Times Book Review and the New York Times Magazine sections)
  • Philadelphia Inquirer — from 1981 - current
  • Richmond Times Dispatch — from 8/19/1985 - current
  • Washington Post — from 1977 - current
  • Washington Times — from 1990 - current
  • Winchester Star -  from 2/2001 - current
The library's subscription also includes access to America's News Magazines, which covers U.S. and international news, business, lifestyle, entertainment, sports, and science and technology from familiar magazines such as TIME, U.S. News & World Report, People Weekly, Fortune, Popular Science and Sports Illustrated. In many cases, access includes articles from as far back as the early 1990s.
Teachers/educators will appreciate the Special Reports section, which  focus on topics such as the 2012 presidential election, world politics, conflict and terrorism and natural disasters.
