Rohrbach Library acquires Philadelphia Inquirer and Pittsburg Post-Gazette Historical Newspaper Digital Archives

Students of Kutztown University now have access to one of researchers’ most sought-after primary source materials. ProQuest Historical Newspaper empowers researchers to digitally travel back in time to better understand the past.

Kutztowns’ acquisition includes access to The Philadelphia Inquirer and Pittsburgh Post-Gazette digital archives. As one of the oldest operating daily newspapers in the United States, The Philadelphia Inquirer has covered some of the most significant events in American History. Nearly as old as the country itself, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has been dedicated to serving its readership since its beginnings.

As of December 2016, the following content was loaded:

  • Philadelphia Inquirer: 1860-2001. Content will continue to load through August 2017.  The complete run will include 1829-2009.
  • Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: 1786-1985. When digitization is complete, the complete run will include 1786-2008.
