The library has opted for a thirty-day trial of Hispanic Life in America: a Readex Database. The trial is good through March 15, 2022.
The database trial can be accessed here after authenticating using either the VPN or proxy.
Readex provides the following information on the database:
This database covers three time periods: Series 1: 1704-1942 | Series 2: 1943-2009 | Series 3: 2010-today
- Comprehensive coverage of the Hispanic American experience from the early 18th century to the present day
- Sourced from more than 17,000 publications, including 700 Spanish-language newspapers and periodicals
- An easy-to-use online resource—updated daily with new material—that illuminates centuries of Hispanic history, culture, and daily life.
The Library has acquired Readex’s Hispanic American Newspapers, 1808-1980, a collection of Spanish- and English-language newspapers printed in the U.S. during the 19th and 20th centuries. The papers are sourced from 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.
The resource can be cross-searched with other Readex historical newspaper series, including Early American Newspapers, Caribbean Newspapers, and African American Newspapers, 1827-1998.
