Global Press Archive

The Global Press Archive (GPA) is an initiative by East View Information Services in partnership with Stanford University Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to digitize over 2,000 predominantly foreign-language newspaper titles ranging in coverage from the late 19th century to present times. The GPA reportedly will digitally preserve and make searchable "more than 30 million pages of newspaper content" over several years. 

GPA includes stand-alone titles and databases aggregating multiple titles from a specific region and time period. As of October 2019, GPA includes 20+ newspaper titles and aggregated archives available for purchase through East View.
