Directions to the archive

Holdings

This pilot project features contemporary and historic military newspapers from Naval and Air Force bases in Florida, Georgia, the Panama Canal, and Cuba, including the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The collection is searchable by keyword or by several different categories such as title, author, location and date of publication, or target audience. The full text of all articles can also be searched, or you can simply browse the collection, which now has 22 titles and a couple thousand issues. The Digital Military Newspaper Library hopes to capitalize on prior success with the university’s other digital newspaper libraries (Florida and Caribbean) and online oral history projects.
