NewsBank Workflow

Page history last edited by Samina Gul Ali 6 years, 4 months ago

Search NewsBank


  1. Since an institutional license is required for NewsBank, you need to be working on campus or you need to sign in to ProQuest via the UM/UCSB/CSUN library site.
    1. Go to your library site. Search the Databases > N. Select "NewsBank Full Text Newspapers"
  2. If you're off campus, you will need to sign in with your student ID and password.
  3. Click on "A-Z Source List" (located at the top of the page)
    1. Enter your chosen publication in the search box, and click your publication name (this will take you to a new search page)
  4. You now have the option to search the entire collection available for your publication, or to choose a specific date. (I have not found a way to search a specific time frame--still looking into this option)
    1.  In the search bar, type "humanities" including the quotes.
    2.  On the results page, sort by "Best Match" (located in the column on the left-hand side)
    3.  The results page generates 20 articles per page. Click "Select Articles 1-20" at the top-left of the results (I am still investigating if it is possible to increase articles per page. So far, it seems like we are stuck at 20) 
  5. Once you've selected the proper number of articles, click the "Download" button (located at the top of your generated results, second from the right. It is in between "Print" and "Save to my folder")
    1. A dialogue box titled "Download Documents (1-20 of 20) will appear. Make sure "Include Citation" is checked. In the drop down menu, choose MLA
  6. The downloaded articles will save in a single PDF file. For now, save this file to your desktop. We will later convert the file to a plain-text document using Pandoc
