From the University of Arizona Libraries:
Curated, researched and digitized by librarians and archivists, in consultation with UA professors, the collection features 20 significant Mexican and Mexican American publications, many in Spanish.
The newspapers and magazines were published in Tucson, El Paso, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sonora, Mexico from the mid-1800s to the 1970s.
This preservation, now accessible through the Historic Mexican and Mexican American Press Collection is of significant research value to “anyone interested in the Mexican cultural narrative and the Mexican voice – the fight for their land, language and rights,” [Roberto Cintli] Rodriguez, [an assistant professor in the UA department of Mexican American studies] said.
“We hope that by making these newspapers available online, this collection will provide an alternative view to a wider audience that at times challenges other articles published in English-language newspapers, some of these topics are relevant today,” said UA librarian Chris Kollen.
Also, materials within the collection are optimized for online information seeking and archived for long-term digital preservation.
