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.
