Digital Humanities

For nearly thirty years, East View has been unlocking foreign newspaper content.

The GPA program incorporates Preservation through Digitization and Discovery through online Access, with global newspapers presented as searchable online archives, covering a diverse range of languages and countries.

GPA launched with an aggregation of titles already available from East View, with hundreds more to come, representing a leap forward for Digital Humanities research. Many will be available as comprehensive archives for the first time and the effort will collectively present immense new value for scholarly research.

In creating GPA, East View is committed to ensuring that these valuable resources are preserved for future generations of scholars, and to providing users with the best possible research tools.
