A large archive of digital Alternative Press newspapers is now available to UConn students, faculty and staff.
Independent Voices is a digital collection made up of alternative press newspapers, magazines and journals from the latter half of the 20th century, drawn from the special collections of participating libraries. Archives and Special Collections has been contributing materials from its holdings to the digital archive over the last year. These periodicals were produced by feminists, dissident GIs, campus radicals and the New Left, Native Americans, anti-war activists, Black Power advocates, Hispanics, LGBT activists, the extreme right-wing press and alternative literary magazines.
This is a valuable resource for research comprised of what is an increasingly deteriorating paper medium for historically alternative politics and culture In America. Independent Voices can be found in the Human Rights databases through the library webpage.
