New for 2017-18: WSJ and Genderwatch

23 Aug

Historical Newspapers iconThere are two changes in the MW Library’s online resource toolbox this year, both related to our ProQuest resources (available at

Our historical newspaper subscription now includes articles from the Wall Street Journal (1889-1999) in addition to the New York Times (1851-2013) and the Guardian/Observer (1791-2003). You may search these three newspaper archives simultaneously or separately.

From the same ProQuest interface, you may also search Genderwatch, a database that supports gender, LGBTQ, family, ethnic, and societal studies with over 300 titles, 250 of which are available in full-text. These sources provide coverage from 1970 to the present and include scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, books, conference papers & proceedings, dissertations & theses, reports, trade journals, and working papers. Many sources are from a Western perspective, yet the database also contains international titles like the feminist quarterly Sister Namibia.

If you’re enrolled in Gender and Culture in the Middle East and North Africa or Gender, Politics, and Consumerism, or you’re exploring topics like sexuality, religion, societal roles, feminism, masculinity, eating disorders, or healthcare for your GS10 or mentorship paper, consider searching ProQuest’s Genderwatch database.

You’ll find the 2017-18 passwords for access to all of the MW Library’s online resources in the Student Information course of itslearning or in the library.
