In the current fiscal climate the Missouri State Library has taken a close look at the online resource services offered to MOREnet members. The Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch have low overall usage across the state, relative to the high cost of the resource. Because of this, the decision has been made to not renew the statewide NewsBank contract after the current expiration on July 31, 2013.

As of August 1, 2013, access to The Kansas City Star and St. Louis Post-Dispatch will no longer be funded by the Missouri State Library and made available to MOREnet members through NewsBank. Please keep in mind that access to articles from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch are available to MOREnet members through EBSCO at http://search.ebscohost.com.
