Canadian Newsstream Renewal 2020-2021
Begins:August 1, 2020
Ends:July 31, 2021
Canadian Newsstream provides the very best access to current, full-text newspapers with longer backfiles and more timely access to The Globe and Mail, National Post, Montreal Gazette, Ottawa Citizen, Toronto Star, Regina Leader Post, Edmonton Journal, Vancouver Sun and the Victoria Times Colonist. Titles can be searched together or separately for maximum researcher efficiency.
Canadian Newsstream is fully cross-searchable with other important ProQuest products including the ABI/INFORM Collection, Historical Newspapers, Canadian Business & Current Affairs (CBCA), and all other databases the institution accesses via the ProQuest platform giving researchers the latest news to complement their topic research.
Canadian Newsstream’s indexing helps researchers quickly find the news information they need as well as track news events over time or at location of origin. The indexing covers complete bibliographic information and subjects, companies, people, products, and geographic areas. Each issue of every newspaper is indexed, so users have access to the top news stories and also detailed information on the arts, sports, business, and popular culture.
ELN Sites may choose to subscribe to one or more of the following collections within the Canadian Newsstand database:
- Major Dailies: includes major daily papers from across Canada
- Canadian Newsstream: Complete: includes all titles from the Major Dailies collection as well as the now defunct Pacific Collection
Last updated: June 2020
ELN sites currently use the ProQuest interface to Canadian Newsstream. Historical statistics can be found using the instructions for the SLRI interface.
