Electronic Database Trials
UNLV Libraries patrons have temporary access from the UNLV campus to the databases listed below.
**You may not be able to access these from off-campus.**
The Libraries arrange trial access to electronic resources that are under consideration for a subscription. Librarians review databases for addition to the collection twice per year and your comments are very valuable in this selection process. Please let us know what you think of the resources by filling out the comments form.
If you have any questions about these products or would like to recommend a product for a future trial please contact a Subject Librarian.
Keesing's World News Archive contains about 95,000 unbiased, full-text reports of the most historically significant political, social, and economic events of the world since 1931. About 150 new articles are added each month. Among the events covered are elections and changes of government; wars, treaties, appointments, and diplomacy; terrorism and issues of internal security; legislation, budgets, economic developments and international agreements; actions by the UN and other international organizations; natural disasters, environmental issues, and scientific discoveries.
In addition to keyword searching, there is a “Breaking History” feature providing historical analysis and context on today’s headlines. Each Breaking History article uses the Keesing’s archive to generate a full timeline with links to contemporary articles on the events dominating today’s news.Try out this database!
