Via Newsbank you can access over 875 news sources from the UK and Ireland with not only archived content going back as far as 1982, but also the most up-to-date news with articles from the previous day’s publications available for you to search and browse. In addition to national titles such as The Daily Mirror, Daily Telegraph, Financial Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Observer, The Sun, and The Times, you will also find regional titles which can be browsed using the interactive map.

Advanced search facilities enable you to search by headline, author, date, and source amongst others, and results can be displayed in order of date (most recent or oldest first) or relevance. If there’s a particular topic you want to keep on top of you can create an alert which will email you links to new articles relating to your search, as they are published.

Another interesting feature of NewsBank is their Hot Topics section which highlights some of the most prominent events and stories from each month, giving you a little detail on them and offering search terms to enter in order to find articles that will explore the topic further. These Hot Topics are divided into a number of subject themed sections. Similarly, be sure to check out NewsBank’s Special Reports which aggregate coverage of issues, events and personalities. Alongside current materials you can also look back at events from recent history and how they were covered in the news media.
