NewsBank Annoucement Concerning FY14 Subscription
September 10, 2012
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 resources. Because of this, the decision has been made to not renew the statewide NewsBank contract after the current expiration on July 31, 2013.
MOREnet and the Missouri State Library realize that this decision may present difficulties for those organizations that do use this service. MOREnet is discussing with NewsBank the possibility of offering the database as an optional fee-based service to interested MOREnet members. As soon as additional information is available about this potential service it will be posted to the online resources list at online email@example.com.*
The EBSCO, Gale, NewsBank and LearningExpress resources are available to MOREnet Members at the Full Service or Basic Service membership level.
MOREnet member access to the online resource databases funded by the Missouri State Library and DESE is provided for the use and benefit of Missouri citizens in support of the missions of Missouri-based educational and public sector institutions. For any member organization that is not based in Missouri, access will be limited to the organization's Missouri location(s). MOREnet reserves the right to audit access for compliance purposes.
