The Libraries have arranged an extended one-year trial to the combined archives of the Arkansas Gazette (1868-1991), Arkansas Democrat (1947-1991) and Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (1991-1992) archives. This trial will give U of A researchers access to more than 150 years of our state's history: first hand. The archive offers full-text searching through news stories as well as full page images from 1868 -1992.
The archive is still being developed so please note that some early years are difficult to read and some gaps exist in the coverage (1900-1908 for the Gazette and April 1992 - December 1993 for the Democrat-Gazette. )
At the end of our year-long trial, the Libraries will be selecting certain segments of the archive for permanent purchase so please share your thoughts on this new resource.
We've added 3 new historical newspaper archives to our suite of ProQuest databases:
Together with the New York Times and Chicago Defender archives, these new papers expand the array of viewpoints, regions, and time periods covered by our primary source collections.
