Center for Research Libraries: Latest News

The Center for Research Libraries' Summer 2010 Newsletter is now available at http://www.crl.edu/focus. The issue is Africa-centered, featuring research on the sub-Saharan region that includes digitized African newspapers from the 19th and early 20th centuries. In addition, the newsletter contains a survey of research on the impact of 19th century Christian missionaries in Africa.

Also, on June 30, CRL announced the release of the World Newspaper Archive's South Asian Newspapers (see the article at http://www.crl.edu/news/6699). CRL libraries will have free access to these newspapers, which date from the 19th century and consist of over 400,000 searchable pages, until August 9.
