NewsBank Has a New Interface!

NewsBank recently launched their new interface. While it looks different, its content remains the same and Jenkins' members still have access to The Philadelphia Inquirer back to 1981 and The Philadelphia Daily News back to 1978.

This new interface has a search box on the homepage for easy searching. This box is ideal for broad searches, like keyword searches, and will search across all of NewsBank.

NewsBank has added some Quick Links to its homepage, including the ability to search across all Pennsylvania resources. This is found below the main search bar, on the right side of the screen.
