New Flier for Scholars. More Content in the Catholic News Archive

A link to the new flier, A Fully-searchable open digital repository of historical Catholic news, is on the home page of the Catholic Newspapers Program. Scroll down to find the link to this downloadable, printable flier. This flier was distributed to attendees at the American Catholic Historical Association 2019 Annual Meeting in Chicago. Following a brief description, the focus is on what scholars, librarians and archivists say about their interests and use of Catholic newspapers.

Please share the flier with colleagues. And, use it in promotion to faculty and students, especially those engaged in historical research on a broad range of disciplines and topics such as school desegregation, peace, health care, and the Second Vatican Council. Content includes:

• 19th century - 1831-1885 from the Cincinnati and St. Louis diocesan papers 
• 20th century - 1920-1970 from the Catholic News Service with years through 1986 and the Catholic World in Pictures in the queue 
• 20th century – 1933 – 2016 from the Catholic Worker 
• 20th century - 1958-1978 from the diocesan papers from Hartford, Miami, New Orleans, Newark, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and the national paper, National Catholic Reporter

We hope you will use this opportunity to add a link(s) from your library website pages to the Catholic News Archive  as some of your colleagues have already done. You may wish to include a description: Access to thousands of digitized issues of Catholic newspapers. Search by keyword, names, events and places. Browse by years, newspaper titles and dioceses.

Thanks to Darren Poley, chair, and others on the Newspapers Committee and Digitizing Partners for ensuring the flier speaks to scholars. Please send your comments and suggestions to Darren Poley or any member of the group.
