Canadian Newsstream: Black Press
Canadian Newsstand: Black Press was discontinued by ProQuest at the 2016/17 Canadian Newsstream Renewal.
Canadian Newsstand offers unparalleled access to the full text of nearly 300 newspapers from Canada's leading publishers, including The Globe and Mail.
This full text database includes the complete available electronic backfile for most newspapers, providing full access to the articles, columns, editorials, and features. Some backfiles date as far back as the late 1970s and 1980s. Canadian Newsstand content is updated daily so researchers always have timely access to new information.
Offering Canadian Newsstand through the ProQuest web interface provides subscribers with a single point of access to integrated Canadian, U.S., and international content and takes advantage of the extensive features and functions of the interface.
Now you're able to create an online newspaper resource from one of the world's largest newspaper collections to best meet the needs of your library's patrons. In addition, researchers can cross-search Canadian Newsstand with the Canadian Business & Current Affairs™ (CBCA) database, a very powerful combination for the retrieval of Canadian information.
ELN Sites may choose to subscribe to one or more of the following collections within the Canadian Newsstand database:
- Pacific Collection: includes major BC dailies and regional papers
- Major Dailies: includes major daily papers from across Canada
- Black Press: includes 61 community newspapers from Western Canada
