Readex Partners With CRL on World Newspaper Archive

Readex (www.readex.com), a division of NewsBank, inc. (www.newsbank.com), and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL; www.crl.edu) announced that they will create the world’s largest, fully searchable digital archive of international newspapers. The World Newspaper Archive is designed to provide students, teachers, and scholars with unprecedented access to historical newspapers published outside the U.S., advancing research and offering new insights across wide-ranging academic disciplines. The cooperative project will systematically digitize and deliver over the web the foreign newspapers held by CRL and other major newspaper repositories.

This uniquely comprehensive electronic resource will first offer Latin American newspapers published between 1805 and 1922 in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and other countries. The initial Latin American series will offer approximately 35 titles, encompassing nearly 1 million pages. Further series will focus on historical newspapers published in Africa, South Asia, and other areas. Users will be able to seamlessly cross-search the World Newspaper Archive with America’s Historical Newspapers, including Early American Newspapers and Hispanic American Newspapers.

Participating members of CRL will enjoy permanent access to the World Newspaper Archive, while all others around the world will be offered access by Readex. Charter CRL participants now include Harvard University; McMaster University; New York Public Library; Princeton University; University of California, Berkeley; University of California, Los Angeles; University of Illinois–Urbana-Champaign; University of Texas; University of Washington; and Yale University.
