America’s News from NewsBank allows you to read daily newspapers from across the country with full issues going back to the 1980s. Major metro newspapers like USA Today, The Oregonian, Los Angeles Times, and hundreds of small town papers are available to search and browse. Edwardsville Public Library cardholders can access America’s News and browse the service from home with remote access. You will find the link to America’s News under Newspapers on the Research page on Edwardsvillelibrary.org.
The service makes research and homework easy with features like Find a Topic, Special Reports, and Hot Topics. You can quickly access all newspaper articles related to Harry Potter if you go through the Leisure Activities page under Find a Topic. This is a great way to browse your areas of interest and stay on top of current trends and goings-on.
Special Reports is featured prominently in the navigation bar on the left side of the page. If you were to click the US Presidential Campaign link, you would find extensive coverage on all candidates, debates, and all things pertinent to the election. There are links to articles, maps, images, external websites, and more. There really is a wealth of information for any of the topics covered in Special Reports.
