Existing Collections Updated
Columbia Spectator Archive (Columbia University)

: The Archive is the result of partnership between the Columbia Spectator and the University Archives, a unit of Columbia University Libraries. The project enabled digitization of the full run of Columbia’s University's student newspaper from the paper’s beginnings in 1877 through to 2012.
According to Susan Hamson, the University Archivist, the Spectator is important not simply as a document of Columbia's past but also of New York City’s history, covering its political, educational and social changes.

Bringing historical newspaper collections to life
Did you know that Veridian is the software that makes it easy to search, view and interact with digitized newspaper collections on the internet and on Elephind!

Veridian was designed specifically to organize large digitized newspaper collections and make them easily accessible to anyone online. Many, but not all, of the source collections that are searchable from are Veridian-based collections.  

The Veridian team works hard to help attract an audience to the collections we help digitize; we create opportunities for that audience to engage with the content, with the library, and with each other; and we work with the library to develop and maintain the collection over time.

We hope you enjoy browsing the world's historical newspapers on the Veridian platform.

Elephind Search Tip
Searching for someone's name? Try a "proximity search" like
"John Smith"~5
The ~5 part tells Elephind to find items containing both the words "John" and "Smith" where they are no more than 5 words apart. So as well as finding "John Smith" it will also find "John J. Smith", "John Frederick Smith", "John Fullerton-Smith", and even "Smith, John".
