Hispanic American Newspapers

The library is trialing the database Hispanic American Newspapers through November 11th, and we need your input to help us decide if we should add it to our collections.

Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808-1980, represents the single largest compilation of Spanish-language newspapers printed in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries. The collection features hundreds of Hispanic American newspapers, including many long scattered and forgotten titles published in the 19th century. It is based on the “Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Project,” a national research effort directed by Nicolás Kanellos, Brown Foundation Professor of  Hispanic Studies at the University of Houston.

Access to the trial is available from the libraries’ A-Z Databases list and in the library catalog through October 30th.

Please use the feedback form to share your thoughts. Your answers will inform whether the Library decides to add Hispanic American Newspapers to the collections . If you have questions, please contact your liaison librarian.
