LAMP (previously known as the Latin American Microform Project) has completed filming of rare Paraguayan newspapers from the collection of the University of Connecticut. The four titles (La Opinión, La Patria, El Pueblo, and La Unión) were published in Asunción in the 1890s, during the early days of rule by the Partido Colorado (founded in 1887). The papers represent the divergent opinions of the two dominant political parties during the first Colorado Era.
