America’s Historical Newspapers and the World Newspaper Archive are now available with enhanced interfaces. In terms of systemwide subscriptions, this affects Early American Newspapers Series 1 and 2. Campuses that locally subscribe to additional collections within America’s Historical Newspapers, please contact your representative for updated URL syntax.

According to Readex, all customers with America’s Historical Newspapers or World Newspaper Archive have been automatically redirected to the improved interface effective early January. Every current feature has been retained—and many new and exciting features added—but researchers will still have the option of using the original interface via a link in the banner at the top of the homepage through May 2019.
