Databases

Alt-Press Watch

Alt-PressWatch is a full text database of the newspapers, magazines and journals of the alternative and independent press. As a current and retrospective collection, Alt-PressWatch provides a valuable new  source of coverage, viewpoints and perspectives to complement and challenge the coverage of the mainstream media and serves a broad spectrum of subject areas including the arts, media and popular culture, business and labor studies, education, environmental studies and ecology, global studies, history, journalism, literary and critical studies, political science, government and public policy, social science and more. In an era in which more and more media is owned by fewer and larger corporate conglomerates, the alternative press is one of the last bastions of independent and critical print coverage. Alternative newsweeklies, available in most cities, give readers alternative perspectives on politics, government, policy and culture; report on issues of government and education, local, national and international issues; and cover topics such as hunger, abuse, the environment, religion and the arts.
