Library Databases Now Include "Newsbank"

The Largo Library now has "Newsbank" among its offered databases. It is a focused version that concentrates on back issues of the St. Petersburg Times and about 10 news magazines.

It is easy to get to, just click on the "E-Sources" tab on any library terminal, then hit "databases." From there you can find the database in an alphabetical listing or you can find it under the "News and Current Events" category.

The good news does not stop there, however. You can also access Newsbank from your home computer through the library site (http://www.largopubliclibrary.org/). Just click on the "databases" tab on the home page, ask for the alphabetical list, and then click on Newsbank.
