    I think its a very good way to read it free of charge. I used to read it via my school’s library resource gateway until they stopped providing it.

    for some reason…i kept getting redirected to the NLB main home page after looking for Nexis via “Type” – anyone with similar problem??…man this NLB navigation is horrible!

    sad to sad Nexis is already unavailable.

    Database provides authoritative news and business information. Publications include: Business monitor news, The Business Times(Singapore) and The Straits Times.
    This service is no longer available.”
