Focus on E-Resources: Latin American Newspapers, 1805-1922

Starting on September 15, Southern California will experience Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, an exploration of Latin American and Latino art in Los Angeles. To join in the celebration, we are pleased to announce the recent acquisition of an online database with more than 280 historic Latin American newspapers published between 1805 and 1922. The database is available for on-site library use.

The titles are from more than 20 countries and published in English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. The contents can be sorted by city, country, or publication date. Lists of notable titles for Series 1 (1805-1922) and Series 2 (1822-1922) are available for browsing.

The newspapers chronicle the evolution of Latin America through advertisements, editorials, eyewitness reporting, legislative information, letters, obituaries, poetry, and other items, offering a wide range of viewpoints from diverse Latin American cultures.
