New research source

The UMD Libraries are pleased to announce the availability of a new electronic resource, the historical files of The Evening Star, the newspaper of record for Washington, DC, for the years 1852 to 1922. Articles in the database are full-text and fully searchable. Published under such titles as Washington Star-News and The Washington Star, this long-running daily afternoon newspaper was one of the highest profile publications in the United States.

The UMD Archives is particularly pleased that this resource has been added to the very long list of the Libraries’ searchable databases, since the Star contains a great deal of coverage of activities at the Maryland Agricultural College and the University of Maryland.

You may access the database through the UMD Libraries’ Research Port at http://researchport.umd.edu/databases&id=UMD08554.
