Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

As the first draft of history, newspapers have preserved detailed records of topics, people, issues and events for hundreds of years. For searching and browsing American newspapers published in the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, America's Historical Newspapers is the most comprehensive online resource available.

Continually expanding, it currently offers fully searchable digital facsimiles of nearly 2,000 titles from all 50 states. America's Historical Newspapers offers eyewitness reporting, editorials, legislative information, letters, poetry, advertisements, matrimony and death notices and more. Designed for researchers of varying skill levels, this acclaimed collection chronicles the evolution of American culture and daily life across three centuries.

Newspapers in the 1800s were often published by small-town printers and reflected the interests and values of the communities they served. But as America grew and changed, so too did its newspapers. In the 19th century, the number of titles in the nation rose dramatically, and newspapers were transformed by an increasing emphasis on society, industry, scientific advances, investigative journalism and human-interest stories. After the Civil War, daily editions replaced many weeklies, and - by the early 20th century - nearly every town in the United States had its own newspaper.

Integrated interface and individual series

America's Historical Newspapers now includes Early American Newspapers Series 1-7, 1690-1922 and Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808-1980. Each collection is cross searchable via an integrated interface, through which researchers can easily view, magnify, print and save digital images of both articles and pages. Advanced search capabilities allow users to search by date, place of publication or article type, as well as browse individual titles.

More than 90 sources and superior bibliographic control

America's Historical Newspapers has been created through partnerships with the American Antiquarian Society, the Library of Congress, the Wisconsin Historical Society and more than 90 other institutions. A distinguished academic advisory board supervises the title selection process, considering the historical significance of each newspaper and the diverse political positions of the period. Bibliographic control is provided by Clarence S. Brigham's "History and Bibliography of American Newspapers, 1690-1820," Winifred Gregory's "American Newspapers 1821-1936" and Nicolás Kanellos
