James Bennett is pleased to announce that Keesing's World News Archive has been added to the eResources stable.
Scholars and librarians agree that Keesing’s World News Archive is the most efficient and cost effective way to research world events. Published since 1931, Keesing’s has been serving scholars, students, writers and reference librarians with factual information on the most important political, social and economic events by providing carefully vetted, accurate, objective and concise reports from every part of the world.
Written for the permanent record and with no political or advertising masters to appease, Keesing’s is a uniquely neutral and accurate source of information. Keesing’s is used in more than 80 countries by academics, businesses and governments seeking to get quick access to important historical background. The entire 80 year, 100,000+ article archive is available with either an annual or perpetual license. And it’s updated each month with more than 55,000 words in at least 150 articles.
IN RESEARCHING THE NEWS AND IN WRITING THEIR ARTICLES THEY ARE GUIDED BY FOUR ESSENTIAL EDITORIAL PRINCIPLES:
- Internationalism: Keesing’s is committed to providing comprehensive information on all regions of the world, covering all major developments in all countries.
- Accuracy: their reputation for accuracy, preserved and nurtured since Keesing's was first published in 1931, is their greatest asset. They work with the benefit of greater hindsight than that enjoyed by newspapers or the electronic media and thus have more time for checking facts and authenticating information.
- Objectivity: Keesing’s aim to be as objective as is humanly possible. They do not editorialise and they do not pass judgement upon the events which they record. The organisation is totally independent, with no political agenda to promote and no external commercial interests to placate.
- Permanence: Keesing’s is not producing disposable news. They are writing "for the record", and thereby providing a "first take on history". They do not sensationalise or distort for the sake of creating a eye-catching headline. Their aim is to establish the truth, to present it clearly, and to preserve it for future generations of researchers.
The result of this process is that the Keesing's World News Archive contains a wealth of hard information: news upon which you can rely.
