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 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 CRL Alliance: Open Access Collection of Revolutionary Mexican Newspapers

For the CRL Alliance’s third Open Access collection, CRL advisors have selected a number of newspapers published in Mexico during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries – a tumultuous time in Mexico’s history. The Independent and Revolutionary Mexican Newspapers collection traces the evolution of Mexico during this pivotal period and provides rare documentation of the dramatic events of this era and includes coverage of Mexican partisan politics, yellow press, political and social satire, as well as local, regional, national and international news.

Most of the titles in the Independent and Revolutionary Mexican Newspapers collection are from the Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection, a renowned research library at the University of Texas at Austin for area studies on Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the Latino presence in the United States.

The Independent and Revolutionary Mexican Newspapers collection will ultimately include approximately 1,000 titles from Mexico’s pre-independence, independence and revolutionary periods (1807-1929). More details to come in Fall 2020.
