Readex Adds More Historical Newspapers to Archive

Readex (, a division of NewsBank, announced that in May 2007, it will begin adding two new series of fully searchable newspapers to its ongoing America's Historical Newspapers archive. Complementing three previously launched series, the two new collections—Early American Newspapers, Series 4, 1756-1922 and Early American Newspapers, Series 5, 1777-1922—will add more than 200 new titles. The five collections will surpass 1,300 titles. The two new series feature U.S. titles of great historical significance and offer regional weeklies and dailies from across the nation.

The company's stated goal is to create the single most comprehensive resource of historical American newspapers. The collections are based on authoritative bibliographies and were selected by a distinguished academic advisory board. Readex has partnered with the American Antiquarian Society, the Wisconsin Historical Society, and more than 90 other institutions to create its newspaper archive.

The company recently made changes to the interface of America's Historical Newspapers and said it plans to build on those changes by increasing search efficiency and by allowing researchers to sort results in new and more meaningful ways. Future series will expand the coverage of America's Historical Newspapers beyond 1922 to provide what the company said will be unprecedented coverage from 1690 to 1980.
