FT Intelligence replaced by ProQuest International Newsstand

When we were busily updating our links to the new ProQuest platform we noticed something unexpected called ProQuest International Newsstand.

It turned out that the FT Intelligence site (home to the last 10 years - bar the current day - of the FT) was also being discontinued and instead we had access to ProQuest International Newsstand instead. This includes the Financial Times back to 1996 - bar the current day - and also includes over 450 other newspapers and newswires (mostly only going back a year or two admittedly).

If current news is your thing then you might find ProQuest International Newsstand a useful addition to our resources (in additional to Lexis LIbrary, Westlaw and Library PressDisplay).

See our e-newspapers page for full details of the newspaper sites we can access. BTW, we still have access to the Financial Times Historical Archive 1888-2006, part of the Gale NewsVault.

We will add catalogue records for the newspapers in ProQuest International Newsstand in due course, and activate them in SFX / find it @ liverpool.
