Want to find the latest news articles?

Log into your Rio Grande Blackboard account to search both local and international news sources via NewsBank, inc.

Look for links to the following full-text collections listed under Library Resources on the system’s Institution Page:

  • Gallipolis Daily Tribune
  • Columbus Dispatch
  • Ohio News
  • Access World News

Access World News is fully searchable Web-based resource that features news content from all 50 U.S. states as well as more than 5,900 international news sources from 172 countries. The separate links to our local papers and other Ohio News are being provided to make finding those local resources easier. The international news content offered by Access World News is included in its original published language and/or may also be translated into English.
