We’re glad to say that we are now offering unlimited access to the Sacramento Bee via NewsBank. NewsBank allows us to search and read Bee content without online ads, auto-playing videos and other distractions.
To find it, visit the Research Databases page and look for the Sacramento Bee Collection. NewsBank divides the Bee into a few different categories that can be searched together or individually:
- a text-only database of articles included in the print edition (1984-present)
- an image-based replica (“e-edition”) of the paper (November 2017-present, updated every morning); this edition includes everything in the print edition plus some extra sections;
- Sac Bee blogs, with coverage from 2006 (mostly sports, really; this isn’t the New York Times)
- Web edition articles (2009-present), updated a few times a day.
If you’d like to, say, get an email with links to new content as it’s loaded, NewsBank will let you do that—look for create alert links. We hope this resource helps students researching local events and issues.
