Global Press Archive™
Filling the gap in 20th-century international newspaper availability
With the Global Press Archive™, East View Information Services is building the largest collection of digitized international newspapers available.
East View’s current newspaper program includes archives of such noteworthy titles as Pravda, Izvestiia and The Japan Times. With the recent partnership between East View and Stanford University Libraries and The Hoover Institution Library & Archives, Global Press Archive is poised to make available an unprecedented collection of rare newspapers from around the world. All told, this partnership will make available over 2,000 predominantly foreign-language titles – over 25 million pages – ranging in coverage from the late 19th century to today.
While other newspaper digitization programs focus on out-of-copyright, Western-language content, Global Press Archive will include in-copyright, foreign-language content, thus filling a critical gap in the availability of 20th-century collections. In creating Global Press Archive, East View is committed to ensuring that these valuable resources are preserved for future generations of scholars and providing users with the best possible research tools.
East View will work with publishers and copyright holders to expand accessibility of the collection to the broader research community, prioritizing the most rare newspapers held in the collections. While East View estimates that the digitization initiative will take several years to complete, researchers will be able to access an initial cache of prioritized materials within one year, with newly digitized material becoming available on an ongoing basis.
