New Database: Ethnic NewsWatch™ 

The Library is excited to provide access to a new database: Ethnic NewsWatch by ProQuest! 

Ethnic NewsWatch™ is a current resource of full-text newspapers, magazines, and journals of the ethnic and minority press, providing researchers access to essential, often overlooked perspectives. Together, these resources present an unmatched, comprehensive, full-text collection of more than 2.5 million articles from over 340 publications. Perhaps the most valuable aspect of the resources is the inclusion of unique community publications not found in any other database, as well as top scholarly journals on ethnicities and ethnic studies. Ethnic NewsWatch provides visibility into newer ethnic groups as they form distinct communities and develop their own presses. 

Ethnic NewsWatch™ comprehensively covers these ethnic categories:

  • Ethnic groups
  • Minorities
  • Culture
  • Religion
  • Independent press
  • Ethnic studies
  • African American
  • Caribbean
  • African
  • Hispanic American

The database now also contains Ethnic NewsWatch: A History, which provides historical coverage of Native American, African American, and Hispanic American periodicals from 1959-1989.
