Database cutbacks in news and health

Due to the end of a grant that was awarded to the State Library of Ohio, a few databases will no longer be available after June 30th 2009.

-- Consumer Health Complete (EBSCO)
-- America's News Magazines (NEWSBANK)
-- America's Newspapers (NEWSBANK)

However, there are some alternatives.
Health Source: Consumer Edition is a comparable database to Consumer Health Complete.

News magazines, such as Time or Newsweek, can be found in Lexis-Nexis Academic and Factiva. Likewise, newspapers can also be found in these sources.
