Preston Library subscribes to several fantastic news sources where people can find local, national, and international news. Like all of the library’s electronic resources, these are available on Post and via any Web connection for people who have VMI network accounts. Librarians recommend these news sources for Cadets of all years to find credible information, and they come with tools to help people in the research process.
One of the most highly-recommended news databases is Access World News, which provides online access to Lexington’s local weekly newspaper, the News-Gazette, and 100+ Virginia news sources, as well as news from around the world (as the name would suggest). A cool feature is the “Find a Topic” tool, and the database is also a good place to go for election news and information. We hope you’ll check it out.
Other news sources can be found here in the A-Z database list.
