Trial access: News, Policy and Politics Magazine Archive

Following a request from staff in Politics & International Relations the Library has been able to secure trial access for a second time to News, Policy & Politics Magazine Archive from ProQuest. An archival collection comprising the backfiles of 15 major magazines (including the Newsweek archive), spanning areas including current events, international relations, and public policy.

You can access the database via the E-resources trials page. Access is available both on and off-campus.

Trial access ends 15th March 2017.

Offering full runs of 20th-century titles, in full-color, page-image format, News, Policy and Politics Magazine Archive makes newly available and accessible these key sources, for which the archival print issues have not consistently been retained by libraries. The magazines included in the archive are:

  • Americas (1949-2012)
  • Dollars & Sense (1996-2012)
  • Europe (1954-2002)
  • NATO Review (1953-2001)

  • The Unesco Courier (1948-1988)
  • Whole Earth (1977-2002)
  • The World Tomorrow (1919-1934)

These titles offer multiple perspectives on the contemporary contexts of the major events, trends, and interests in these fields throughout the 20th century.

The database can be accessed for the duration of the trial period via e-resources trials.
Access available until 15th March 2017.
