Global Press Archive

Supporting Area Studies and Advancing Digital Humanities

The East View Global Press Archive® (GPA) is a program that embraces an unprecedented variety of global news publications, presented in full-image and full-text format optimized for scholarly use. GPA encompasses newspapers in more than 30 languages and will ultimately include titles from over 125 countries. GPA is the result of a landmark initiative of Stanford University Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to digitally preserve and make more accessible thousands of original print newspaper publications curated at Stanford and the Hoover Institution for most of the twentieth century.

GPA includes both stand-alone titles and databases aggregating multiple titles from a specific region and time period. Wherever possible, titles are presented in their complete runs from the first issue. Many titles appearing in GPA will be first-ever digital versions of these publications and collectively this activity presents immense new value for scholarly research. Most GPA publications will be released on East View’s customized platform, while some titles will be made available through partners on their respective platforms, and new releases are continually being added to the program.

In creating GPA, East View is committed to ensuring that these valuable resources are preserved for future generations of scholars, and providing a maximally comprehensive and geographically diverse portfolio of resources.

New from the CRL Alliance: Open Access Collection of Early 20th-Century Chinese Newspapers

For the CRL Alliance’s first Open Access collection in the Global Press Archive program, advisors from the Center for Research Libraries selected key newspapers published in China during its tumultuous transition from imperial rule to the establishment of the People’s Republic of China. The collection, titled Late Qing and Republican-Era Chinese Newspapers, currently contains 13 titles and over 175,000 pages of content but will ultimately grow to include hundreds of titles and 500,000 pages by 2020.

Open Access to this collection is made possible through the generous support of the Center for Research Libraries and its member institutions.
