World News Connection - change of platform

Access to our World News Connection database subscription has changed.

It is now accessed through the Proquest platform, which also allows it to be cross-searched at the same time as other full-text news resources, dissertations and theses databases, etc.

WNC is a valuable research database for monitoring and searching global current events and issues. It  includes unique editorial content from countries that have restricted information sharing with the rest of the world, and offers data back to 2006. It is updated daily.

Content is compiled from over 830 translated non-U.S. media sources - newspaper articles, conference proceedings, TV and radio broadcasts, periodicals, reports, etc. 

Coverage includes business and economics, crime, health and medicine, humanitarian aid, military affairs, politics, science and technology, socioeconomic and environmental issues and events in countries and regions where news is hard to obtain in English.

Links to the individual news sources in WNC appear in SAULCAT and on the E-Journals pages.

NB: off-campus access: use University Computer Account Username and Password (Shibbolised access)
NB: WCN complements our other existing news media subscriptions - CIAO (Columbia International Affairs Online), Factiva, Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, Nexis (News and Business), and MideastWire.com
