New Interdisciplinary Database Available: Ethnic Newswatch!

Do you want more than one point of view? Need a magazine or journal article written in Spanish for a class? Now you can get these and more! Albertsons Library proudly announces digital access to over 1,000,000 articles from minority and ethnic newspapers, magazines, and journals from 1990 to the present. Through the addition of Ethnic Newswatch (ENW) to our growing list of databases, we now offer faculty and students diverse perspectives and a valuable new resource for interdisciplinary study.

According to the publisher, Proquest, “ENW presents a comprehensive, full-text collection of nearly 1.6 million articles from more than 280 publications offering both national and regional coverage. While the content may mirror mainstream media coverage, the viewpoints are decidedly unique.” ENW offers the voices of “Asian-American, Jewish, African-American, Native-American, Arab-American, Eastern-European, and multi-ethnic communities.” With such a diverse list of resources, Ethnic Newswatch will prove to be an excellent resource supporting study in numerous disciplines including: ethnic studies, cultural studies, gender studies, history, political science, communication, current events, literatures, languages, philosophy, social sciences, education, music, fine arts, mathematics, and sciences.

You can access Ethnic Newswatch any time by going to the Alberstons Library database page and clicking on “Ethnic Newswatch.” The library also offers access to ENW (and most of our other databases) from your home computer; you merely need your BroncoWeb ID and password to login. For more information, feel free to contact Amy Elliott, Reference Librarian, at x6-4302 or by email.
