ProQuest Expands Historical Newspaper Digital Collection

Oct 13, 2011

ProQuest digitized collections of historic American Jewish and regional newspapers, dating as far back as 1841, for its Historical Newspaper collection. The Jewish Advocate and The American Hebrew and Jewish Messenger are available now.

The Advocate is the oldest, continuously-circulating Jewish newspaper in America. Both the Hebrew and the Messenger include coverage of the Jewish abolitionist movement before and during the Civil War. Later this year, ProQuest will add the Jewish Exponent (years 1887 through 1990) and the international Jerusalem Post (1932 through 1988).

ProQuest Historical Newspaper is available on the ProQuest unified platform and includes more than 20 dailies from around the world. The archive currently holds more than 30 million pages.
