Is NewsBank credible?

Newspapers and other news sources can have the reputation of not being the most credible.  While they may not be peer-reviewed like academic journals, NewsBank provides information only from trusted sources.  It is a diverse database that contains over 12,000 searchable titles that are unavailable elsewhere.  If you are concerned about the credibility of NewsBank's sources, you can get more information on their "Why NewsBank?" page.
