Consuming global news from a wide variety of international news sources can give us a new appreciation of historical events but access is typically limited by language barriers. The Library currently provides trial access to the Twentieth Century Global Perspectives collections from Readex. Explore international news on major 20th century issues in translation:

Explore the demise of the German Democratic Republic from a Chinese perspective or read about the Velvet Revolution in the GDR press in The Cold War collection.

Read about the Ku Klux Klan in the South African Beeld, Kenya’s Nairobi Standard, Cuba’s Radio Rebelde, Nicaragua’s Nuevo Diario, or Berlin’s Tageszeitung thanks to the American Race Relations collection. The possibilities for research are endless.

Trial access to the Twentieth Century Global Perspectives collections from Readex will be available until May 24, 2019. Contact Jutta Seibert ( if you would like to recommend this database for purchase.
