A guide that provides information about ProQuest Digitized Newspapers-Recent Newspapers (RNP).

What are ProQuest Recent Newspapers?

ProQuest Digitized Newspapers now includes a new companion product to HNP: Recent Newspapers (RNP).

Included in RNP will be 50+ titles, available on the ProQuest platform. These newspaper titles comprised the former Digital Microfilm product line. The new RNP content, hosted on the ProQuest platform, will consist of full-page, PDF images, from 2008-Recent (with three-month embargoes), that are fully searchable and cross-searchable with all other products on the PQ platform.


Why Recent Newspapers?

And a 2017 ProQuest survey shows that over 72% of researchers use newspapers – key sources that often contain detailed information that is missing from other kinds of historical publications.
