NewsBank Reduces Resources in America's News Magazines

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

The number of publications in NewsBank's America's News Magazines collection has been reduced from 28 to 10. This collection is a complementary collection that has been provided to MOREnet members with the subscription to The Kansas City Star and The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The collection now retains the following publications: Baby Talk, Family Life, Foreign Affairs, Newsweek, Parenting, Popular Science, Slate, Stateline.org, U.S. News & World Report and Washington Family Magazine.

NewsBank issued the following statement:

NewsBank is very aware of tight budget situations in libraries today. Therefore, because of the high cost involved in continuing to provide the Time publications to our customers, we found it necessary to discontinue using them in our databases. Most libraries are receiving these publications through other resources, and we did not feel it was appropriate to charge you again for this duplicate content.

Many full-text Time publications can be found in Gale's General OneFile.
