Access World News / Newsbank
Access World News is a comprehensive newspaper database with over 8000 US and international newspapers available in full text. Over 30 Hawaiʻi newspapers and other news sources are included.
Since newspapers have discontinued publishing their backfiles in microfilm, and access to individual newspaper websites is limited to print subscribers, this database provides much improved access for UH Hilo students, faculty, and staff. Both backfiles and current issues are easily searched and read. In addition, the database includes blogs, broadcast transcripts and newswire services from around the world.
