How to access Newsbank

  • To access Newsbank click on “Library E-Database” on the Lane College Library website then “Newsbank”.
  • Click on a collection you would like to search (e.g., Tennessee Newspaper Collection or America’s News Magazines) from the displayed list.
  • After accessing a collection use the search function at the top of the page to search within the entire collection by headline, all text, lead, author, section, caption, page, source, word count, or date . Also, multiple search bars allow using the functions “and”, “or”, and “not” to narrow a search. Here is an example:

  • After clicking “search” a list of articles meeting the search criteria will be displayed. The left menu allows limiting results (depending on the collection) by year, location, source, and source type. To access an article click on its title.
  • If you would like to print an article click “Print” in the right menu box. This will convert articles into a printer-friendly version that removes unnecessary website graphics. Then click “Print articles” at the top of the page.
  • To e-mail an article click “Email” in the right menu box. Set the recipient and the sender’s email address then click “Send Email”.
  • Articles can be saved during a single session by clicking the checkbox next to an article’s title in the results list. To access saved items click “Saved articles” in the upper right corner. Multiple articles can be printed and e-mailed from this page.
  • At any time you can access Newsbank’s help function by clicking on the “Show Help” box in the upper right.
