Primary Documents and Newspapers

As of May 31, the Graduate Center subscribes to four new full-text electronic resources.  Arab-Israeli Relations, 1917-1970 consists of reports, letters, maps, and other primary documents from the National Archives, London, covering the period from the 1917 Balfour Declaration to the Black September war of 1970-1971.  Iraq 1914-1974 includes primary documents from the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire to the rise of Saddam Hussein.  Sabin Americana, 1500-1926 offers over 6 million pages from 29,000 books, pamphlets, serials, and other documents providing original accounts of exploration, trade, colonialism, slavery and abolition, the western movement, Native Americans, military actions, and related topics.  Nineteenth-Century U.S. Newspapers provides full pages and clipped articles from 410 nineteenth-century American newspapers.  The newspaper collection is strongest in newspapers from Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin.  New York newspapers include the New York Herald from 1830 to 1863, New York Age from 1883 to 1892, Emancipator and Free American from 1833 to 1848, and Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper from 1855 to 1892.  Not every article in each issue is included for most of the 410 newspapers.  The database may be searched by state and city.
