Latin American Newspapers [Series 1] (1805-1922)
Latin American Newspapers provides more than 35 fully searchable newspapers published in the 19th and 20th centuries from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela, and elsewhere. LAN I is the first collection of the World Newspaper Archive, a partnership between the Center for Research Libraries community and Readex (a division of NewsBank) to systematically create an extensive Web-based collection of international newspapers.
These examples of titles included in the Latin American Newspapers collection of the World Newspaper Archive illustrate the breadth and depth of this groundbreaking collection.
- El Mercurio [1914–22] - An important Spanish-language paper published in Santiago, often considered Chile's newspaper of record.
- O Estado de São Paulo [1876–1922] - This title (published as A Provincia de São Paulo until 1889) traces Brazil’s history from an empire to a republic, and stands as one of Brazil’s premiere newspapers.
- La Prensa (Buenos Aires, Argentina) [1869–1922] - This title, founded in 1869 by Dr. Jose Clemente Paz, was considered among the most significant newspapers in the world by the turn of the century.
- Mexican Herald [1895–1915] - An English-language title bringing international and local news to the American expatriate community in Mexico.
Please refer to the Readex site for a complete list of titles. The collection contains more than 1.2 million pages of content.
Latin American Newspapers Series 2 (1822-1922)
Latin American Newspapers, Series 2 (launched October 2011) deepens coverage of important countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, and Mexico; and extends the reach of WNA into countries not represented in LAN I such as Bolivia, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Belize. LAN II also extends the range of significant titles begun in LAN I, such as Comercio (Lima, Peru), Diario de la Marina (Cuba), Jornal do Commercio (Brazil), and Nacion (Argentina). A complete list of titles is available on Readex's site.
When completed, this second Latin American module will be of equal size to the first, covering the same time period. Combined, these two collections will provide unparalleled coverage of events of the 19th and early 20th centuries in Latin America. Content is selected from the collections of CRL and partner libraries such as the University of Florida, University of Texas at Austin, Berkeley, Yale, and New York Public Library.
