East View Information Services and the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) have launched Soviet-Era Ukrainian Newspapers (SEUN), the sixth in-copyright collection of titles produced under the Global Press Archive (GPA) CRL Alliance, available now to all CRL member institutions.
Comprising five titles and more than 50,000 pages, SEUN includes national newspapers from three cities, covering the early Soviet era of Ukraine’s history. These titles offer granular insight into important events in Ukraine’s history, including the Ukrainian War of Independence and the Holodomor.
SEUN joins five other in-copyright collections under the GPA CRL Alliance, including the complementary collection Local and Independent Ukrainian Newspapers (LIUN):
- East African Newspapers
- El Caribe Digital Archive
- Local and Independent Ukrainian Newspapers
- Middle Eastern and North African Newspapers Premium
- Post-Perestroika Newspapers
Since 2019, East View and the Center for Research Libraries have partnered in the GPA/CRL Alliance to accelerate the mission of the Global Press Archive. Through the Alliance, CRL defines and sponsors the creation of thematic and single-title collections on the GPA platform. The continuation of this highly successful academic-commercial partnership is a testament to CRL and East View’s shared values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and reinforces the commitment to extend access to global newspaper collections to the widest possible audience.
