Fight fake news!

NewsBank allows you access to a wider world and a variety of viewpoints. Browse through news articles by topic, sort through publications by continent or origin, or read special reports on a number of subjects. Most publications go back at least 20 years, so you can track the news coverage of a particular issue over time.

If you’re a student looking for news coverage for a social studies or current events class, results lists can be filtered by reading level, so younger readers don’t end up over their heads. There are also topics guides to help you understand big world events on an easier level.

“Hot topics”

This wonderful feature brings the most recent articles on an issue together in one place, no matter which news agency wrote the article. It’s not all politics, either—topics covered include government, medicine, sports, people, and the arts (like the latest movies and music!).

NewsBank is a great place to start digging beyond the headlines splashed across social media—the real stories may just surprise you!
