Media Scan is a bibliographic database featuring articles indexed from daily newspapers, and is specifically designed for students and researchers in Australian Secondary schools, TAFE Institutes and Universities. Media Scan has been indexing newspapers since September 1991. Each article is allocated subject headings, but it was not until the start of 1996, that the articles were given SCIS Subject Headings. Media Scan was originally developed to assist students prepare for VCE Cat1.
