Readex to Release Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808–1980

Readex (, a division of NewsBank, announced the initial release of Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808–1980, in February 2008. Created in cooperation with the University of Houston, this new digital resource represents what the company calls "the single largest compilation of Spanish-language newspapers printed in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries." It is the first in a new American Ethnic Newspapers series, available within America’s Historical Newspapers.

The collection features hundreds of titles, including many published bilingually in Spanish and English. It is based on the "Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project," a national research effort directed by Professor Nicolás Kanellos. Prior to Kanellos’ massive undertaking, many of the titles found in Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808–1980, were scattered or forgotten.

With the digital publication of Hispanic American Newspapers, these important primary documents can now be easily browsed, searched, and read. Users can easily compare and contrast Hispanic views on nearly every major theme in American life with those appearing in other America’s Historical Newspapers series, including Early American Newspapers, 1690–1922.
