A few endorsements from NewsBank subscribers:
"We have subscribed to Newsbank Newspapers for many years and it is a resource used across the school particularly by the Headmaster, English Department and sixth formers doing their EPQ. It is reliable, user friendly and broadly useful for information searching in a way that is difficult to match with other online products on the market"
Librarian, Nottingham High School
"Newsbank allows our students to access and search the breadth of national newspapers, and luckily for us our local newspaper too. It supports them in their wider research which is a critical part of their studies especially at Post 16"
Thomas Deacon Academy
"If I could have only one on-line resource, Newsbank would be it. I could not manage without it"
Suggestions for promoting Online resources, Librarian, Roedean
"Recently I've been promoting our online resources in general via posters for each subject area. I list the online resources including Newsbank on the poster and give subject departments a copy of the poster for their classrooms. On the poster is a QR code, which when scanned, allows the girls to access the electronic version of the poster on our school intranet via their phones/iPads so they can just click on the links. We always have a link to Newsbank on our library catalogue web page, which is accessible via the school intranet"
All NewsBank resources provide unlimited user access at a single site, plus remote access for use from home.
Annual subscription prices for Educational establishments are based on the number full time students (FTEs)- please contact us with your FTE count for a quotation.
