New e-resource: American Indian Newspapers

Cambridge University Libraries are delighted to announce the acquisition of the digital archive American Indian Newspapers.

For this new acquisition, we are sincerely grateful to the legacy of Dr. Mark Kaplanoff, Fellow of Pembroke College, whose endowment provides Cambridge with rich and diverse collections to support the study of the history of the United States in the University.
