Global Press Archive

Supporting Area Studies and Advancing Digital Humanities

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 80 countries. GPA is the result of a landmark initiative of Stanford Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to digitally preserve and make more accessible thousands of original print newspaper publications collected by the Hoover Institution and now housed by Stanford Libraries.

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 GPA CRL Alliance: El Mundo Digital Archive (Open Access)

Founded in 1919, El Mundo was a respected, conservative newspaper from Puerto Rico and was widely considered a key source for news until it ceased in 1990. Key topics covered by the newspaper include industrialization of Puerto Rican society, the Great Depression, territorial relations with the United States including citizenship and activities of independence movements such as the Macheteros and FALN, the rise of the Popular Democratic Party, the Ponce massacre, the Ley de la Mordaza (Gag Law), and more. El Mundo closed temporarily in 1986 following a labor strike. The newspaper never fully recovered from the debilitating strikes of the 1980s and ongoing union difficulties. It did reopen in January 1988, only to close again a short while later, ceasing publication permanently in 1990.
