5827EBSCO or All Is Not Lost
- Apr 17, 2006I was notified by BenK yesterday that Godfrey has discontinued EBSCO
services. Next to Proquest this was probably the best resource for
OTR radio titles. Those of us doing log research(Ben, Clorinda,
Phil, ... myself) will greatly miss this service. Many recently
discovered titles such as MMN have come from this resource.
HOWEVER! I have done some research to find an alternate way to
access this resource or obtain access to other old time newspapers.
One of the resources I contacted was NewspaperAchive(dot)com. It
turns out they may actually be a better resource than EBSCO. The
newspaper list seems much more inclusive. While talking to one of
their reps, she informed me that Godfrey has a subscription to
NewspaperArchive(dot)com. Sure enough I found it on the Godfrey
site. I did some preliminary searches and I think it may be quicker
and easier than the EBSCO search engine.
Godfrey users can find this resource on the Godfrey main page. Goto
Newspapers/Journals, then goto Newspaper Archive Elite (Heritage
Microfilm. Don't let the microfilm reference throw you.
