The Australian Financial Review will no longer be available from NewsBank

NEWS: From 15 June, 2007, the Australian Financial Review will no longer be available from NewsBank. (from Fairfax, 4/4/07): Fairfax has not provided any permission that would enable NewsBank to distribute our content in any form. We have raised the issue with NewsBank and will be following up the issue with NewsStand. (from NewsBank, 17/11/06): "Under a joint distribution program, NewsBank partners with NewsStand to deliver AFR image eEdition. NewsBank has rights to sell AFR in the ANZ region under this partnership. The current AFR contract is with NewsStand. There has been no advice that the rights will end. NewsBank is aware of the recent changes with some AFR business content providers, and in the event of a change during 2007 subscription, NewsBank would be prepared to compensate customers."

Technical/Sales Support

Sales Support: Bezi Publishing Services (18/5/15)

NewsBank has advised that they do not automatically block access for excessive usage. In the case of what appears to be automated usage, their policy is to contact the library in question in the first instance to see if the usage is legitimate. If there is no response from the library within 24 hours, NewsBank may opt to temporarily block the IP address or range, but once the library confirms whether the usage is legitimate, access can be reinstated. While NewsBank cannot offer a 24/7 helpdesk service, Bezi Publishing Services will be available during Australian business hours to assist with any cases and as such, we would be able to forward copies of any licensed materials that may be urgently needed by the institution during the blocking period until NewsBank are back in the office (US Eastern time). (5/8/16)
