ProQuest Historical Newspapers: ABC (1903 – 2010)

Screenshot of the 'ProQuest Historical Newspapers: ABC' homepage.

This is a brand new database from ProQuest that has only just become available.
ABC is a Spanish-language newspaper launched in 1903 and the oldest newspaper in Madrid. Known for contributions from numerous esteemed writers and intellectuals the newspaper also uses extensive photography and was the first European newspaper to use photo engravings. Politically, ABC is known for supporting the Spanish monarchy and for its conservative political views. This is an excellent resource for the research of Spanish history and perspectives.

Codices Vossiani Latini Online

Feedback welcome.

Please note, trial access to a resource is an opportunity for our staff and students to try a resource out and give feedback on its quality and usefulness. However, if we trial a resource this is not an indication that we plan to or will be able to purchase or subscribe to the resource in the near future.
