Answer

We have replaced our subscription to Lexis UK Newspapers with a subscription to a new database called Global Newsstream.
 
(We still have our subscriptions to other Lexis products, only our newspaper subscription has changed!)

Why have we changed to Global Newsstream?

• Global Newsstream includes global coverage (e.g. The New York Times, Washington Post, The Bangkok Post, South China Morning Post, Asian Wall Street Journal, Jerusalem Post) - whereas Lexis UK Newspapers only holds UK content. International press coverage is important for a range of programmes including Business, Journalism, PR, Media, and Tourism. 
You'll be able to search across 600+ newspaper titles and news broadcast outlets at the same time.
Global Newsstream includes the Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal, essential business titles not held by Lexis UK Newspapers.
Global Newsstream hosts video and audio content. It also monitors international broadcasters like NPR, BBC, ABC, CBC.
There are no geo-restrictions on Global Newsstream, so if you study overseas you will also be able to use this resource.
Please note, in Global Newsstream there is no pre-set search across major UK newspapers. We are in the process of creating a screencast which illustrates how to limit a search to the top 17 UK national newspapers in Newsstream, so you should still be able to get this functionality.
 
Please see our blog for full information on Global Newsstream. If you would like more help on how to use Global Newsstream, you can book a one-to-one with library staff.
