Readex Launches American Newspaper Archives

Apr 03, 2009


Readex, a division of NewsBank, announced the launch of American Newspaper Archives, an expanding online collection that will offer access to major U.S. newspapers. A part of America’s Historical Newspapers, the Archives will provide users with fully searchable digital editions of historically significant and regionally diverse publications from the 19th century through the 1990s. American Newspaper Archives will initially feature nine papers and their relevant predecessors. American Newspaper Archives will provide regional perspectives and reporting on conflicts from the War of 1812 to the Gulf War; movements ranging from women’s suffrage to civil rights; scientific and medical advances; noteworthy people; natural disasters; and political campaigns. Each title is available individually, and all are cross-searchable via an integrated interface that allows users to view, magnify, print, and save digital page images.
