LexisNexis Academic: U Wire, Sky News, and The New Age: added/updated content

Fron Jennifer Metheny:

Dear Colleagues,

The 3rd Quarter of 2013 brought many exciting content additions and updates to LexisNexis Academic. Most notably, I’m happy to announce thatUniversity Wire has again started updating in LexisNexis Academic. UWire is the only aggregator of college news from around the U.S. With a collection of daily news stories from 800 colleges, UWire readers can stay on top of university trends, opinions, sports, and entertainment from around the 50 states.

Another recent notable addition is Sky News, a source including content from the Sky News 24-hour news channel, headquartered in the UK. In addition to TV, Sky News’ other platforms include mobile, online, radio and tablet. Their bureaus outside of the UK include those in Beijing, Moscow, Washington, DC, Delhi and Dubai. Documents inside this source include full text news, but also usually link to Sky News images and video, as well. Also added was The New Age (South Africa.) This source is a national daily newspaper in South Africa, owned and operated by TNA Media (Pty) Ltd. The New Age covers news from all nine provinces, along with national events, Op-Ed columns, politics, Africa and International news, sports, business, entertainment, lifestyle, science and technology….

…Finally, as we always like to mention, LexisNexis Academic continues to carry many major newspapers with deep archives like The New York Times and The Washington Post. Our NYT coverage includes Abstracts from 1969 and full text from 1980. Full-text coverage of the Washington Post in LexisNexis Academic goes back to 1977!

Please e-mail me personally with further questions. Have a wonderful week!
