ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Christian Science Monitor Trial
Description: Founded in 1908, CSM has provided balanced coverage of international news and events. With correspondents around the world, the archive has a wealth of articles on wars, scientific discoveries, human rights abuses, political campaigns, the arts, the environment, and people trying to make a positive difference. The archive includes 700,000 pages of content, made easily searchable and readable by the presentation of articles that originally spanned multiple pages in one page image.
Everything in the original newspaper is in the archive – photos, advertisements, marriage announcements – and we find that advertisements are some of the most heavily searched content. With the broad subjects covered, your patrons will have the best resource available for historical research. The historical archive offers different perspectives than other archives and because of this, is a great compliment to other archives, such as The New York Times.
As with all the high quality historical newspaper archives from ProQuest, it includes:
-Complete issues, cover to cover, with articles that originally spanned multiple pages of a newspaper “threaded” together, appearing as one continuous image for improved readability.
-Search for information by keyword, more than 20 article types (front page, editorial cartoon, classified ad, etc.), dates and date ranges, author, and more.
-Basic and advanced search options.
-Search results can be sorted by oldest, most recent, or most relevant.
-Includes photos, advertisements, marriage announcements, obituaries, cartoons, and more.
-Print, download, and share articles and images in PDF format.
