When school starts up this fall, school-age kids with access to Prodigy will be able to access data from Reuters, Newsday, Facts on File, The Sports Network, and the World Library through Homework Helper.
The online research tool contains the full text of 100 newspapers, 400 magazines, multiple encyclopedias, and literary classics, as well as maps and photographs.
Reuters has 128 news bureaus globally, while Newsday and New York Newsday combined boast the sixth largest metropolitan daily newspaper in the United States.
The Windows software lets students pose questions in simple English. It's available through Prodigy at an additional cost of $9.95 for 2 hours each month.
