This preliminary release provides more than 60,000 pages of El Mercurio, an important Spanish-language paper published in Santiago. Often considered Chile's newspaper of record, El Mercurio was founded on June 1, 1900 by Agustin Edwards MacClure, a Chilean businessman and congressman. Although a Valparaiso edition of Mercurio began much earlier (in 1827), MacClure's Santiago edition quickly supplanted its predecessor in importance and circulation. While conservative in tone, the paper focused on independent and objective news reporting rather than ideology. Its modern equipment, top writers and alliances with foreign press services all contributed to its status as the principal newspaper of the country. This release includes 3,000 issues printed between 1914 and 1922. Latin American Newspapers represents the initial result of the partnership between the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) and Readex, a division of NewsBank, to systematically create the world's largest Web-based collection of international newspapers. On completion, Latin American Newspapers will include approximately 35 fully searchable newspapers printed throughout this region in the 19th and 20th centuries. CRL will guarantee the long-term persistence and continued functionality of the news content for the CRL community.
Includes articles from more than 800 Latin Ameri- can journals included in the ARL Latin American Research Re- sources Project. It allows for article searches by keyword, title, author, and journal; and ILL requests
