Changes to newspaper database (ANZRC) access

We've recently stopped subscribing to one of our databases - ANZRC (Australian and New Zealand Reference Centre) - in favour of purchasing more books and diverting funds to superior products like JSTOR.

The good news is that you can now access all the important information that ANZRC provided by other means:
  • for full-text news article searching, go to the State Library of NSW remote access page for ProQuest Australia and New Zealand Newsstand (you need to sign up for a reader's card - see NAS library staff for assistance)

  • full-text searching of Art & Australia and Art Asia Pacific is available from the State Library of NSW remote access page through INFORMIT Online

  • and Art New Zealand has a basic search facility on its own website.

As always, feel free to see us with any questions - we're more than happy to help you.
