The flood-like appearance of an alternative press in the late 1960s expressed the upsurge of dissent and aspiration of American youth. Feminists, dissident GIs, campus radicals and the New Left, Native Americans, anti-war activists, Black Power advocates, Hispanics, and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community all began to publish newspapers and periodicals.
Published over the next four years by Reveal Digital, the assembly and digitization of 1 million+ pages from the magazines, journals, and newspapers of the alternative press is in itself a ground-breaking achievement and contribution to scholarship. And Independent Voices will be cross-searchable with key metadata captured, offering exceptional functionality and intellectual value to researchers.
The following lists cover the titles loaded as part of the beta release
The following target title lists have been identified for the Independent Voices collection. These are preliminary lists and will change as we work through sourcing and permission issues associated with each title. They do provide a sense of direction for each of the series within the Independent Voices collection. We plan to hold around 100 titles open for participating libraries to define based on the local needs of their institutions.
