Database news

May 30th, 2012 by Chris Strauber

Two new resources seem worth mentioning for humanists. And an old one has a new look.

World Newspaper Archive  1800  1922

A joint project of the Center for Research Libraries and CRL, the World Newspaper Archive digitizes newspapers from around the world. Search them together or search by region (Africa, Eastern Europe, Latin America, South Asia). This adds to our somewhat confusing collection of newspaper holdings. See our Newspapers and News research guide for more suggestions.


Dyabola is the index to archaeology literature published by the German Archaeological Institute. This collection also includes a variety of site data and photographic evidence. Note: You will need to click the button for “Activate IP access” to use the database.

Project Muse

Their recent redesign includes descriptive information for e-books…none of which we have bought so far. If there are titles here that you’re interested in, let me or your bibliographer know.

Questions about any of this? Just ask!
