featured resource

NewsBank InfoWeb includes AccessUN, Access World News, hot topics, special reports, maps, and other news resources.

Access World News includes electronic editions of more than 1500 local, regional, and national U.S. newspapers and key international sources in a searchable database. Newspapers include the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and many smaller newspapers. The Southern Illinoisan is there--is your home town newspaper?

AccessUN indexes United Nations documents including Official Records, masthead documents, draft resolutions, meeting records, UN Sales Publications, and the UN Treaty Series. It also includes the full-text of several thousand UN documents.

You can connect to NewsBank InfoWeb from any computer on the SIUC campus network, including your laptop using the SIUC or law school VPN. To see a complete list of electronic resources to which the law library subscribes, go to our Subscription Electronic Resources page.

Thanks to our Acquisitions/Catalog Librarian, Cornelius (Neil) Pereira, for the tip.
