New Early American Databases

By Robert Flatley

Coordinator of Electronic Resources, Interlibrary Loan and Periodicals

The Rohrbach Library is pleased to announce the addition of Early American Newspapers Series 6 & 7 to our e-resources collection.

Early American Newspapers, Series 6 & 7 includes more than 320 significant 18th-, 19th- and 20th-century newspapers, including titles of unique historical significance, regional weeklies and big-city dailies.

Series 6 includes many new titles of singular importance, including the Detroit Plaindealer, Detroit’s first successful black newspaper; The Colored American, which provided detailed coverage of the Amistad revolt; Argus of Western America, an early Kentucky paper and a strong supporter of Andrew Jackson; and the Arkansas Gazette, one of the first papers west of the Mississippi. Other significant titles include the Kalamazoo Gazette, Kansas City Times, Northern Standard, Oregon State Journal and many more.

Series 7 includes many new titles of singular importance, including New Orleans’ Times-Picayune, established in 1837 and one of the South’s most prominent newspapers, and The Oregonian, founded in 1850 in Portland and still the state’s largest daily.

This marks a major addition of primary source materials to the library’s collection.
