As a research Library, CRL shares its members’ strong interest in access to contemporary news content to support research and teaching without geographic or linguistic limits. While CRL and East View Information Services are working through the Global Press Archive Charter Alliance to open news content from across the globe, we are pleased to announce CRL has negotiated complementary member access to many of East View’s additional collections to help members overcome obstacles that have occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following collections will be available to CRL members through October 31, 2020:

  • The Japan News Digital Archive
  • Moscow News Digital Archive
  • Current Digest of the Russian Press Digital Archive
  • Current Digest of the Chinese Press Digital Archive
  • Ogonek Digital Archive
  • Izvestiia Digital Archive

For more Information and the access links to these news collections, please visit eDesiderata.

We encourage you to add these resources to your COVID-19 response pages and to alert your users to their availability during this period. See also CRL’s ongoing list of resources available to CRL members under Special Access conditions.
