Jeff Singer, Director of the Bradford County Library, will be presenting an information program “Beyond Google, Using NewsBank” on Monday, August 20.
While Google is great for quick searches, as a research resource, the results can be overwhelming and misleading. NewsBank, a news information database, available to all patrons onsite and remote, is ideal for a wide range of research projects and school assignments. NewsBank’s easy-to-use interface will help you search thousands of full-text news sources nationwide to find the information you need. Their collection provides comprehensive news coverage at the local, state, regional and national levels; includes diverse source types including videos, web-only sources, newspapers, blogs, and wire services.
This program is free and open to the public. Please bring a portable personal electronic device to enhance the presentation
