Supports Research and Learning from Alternative Perspectives

Students, faculty and researchers increasingly demand access to insights and information from a variety of perspectives. In response, libraries are reevaluating collections to ensure voices that have not been widely represented are not only included but are easily discoverable and accessible.

ProQuest’s Diversity Collection can help. This inclusive, user-friendly resource combines three unique full-text databases – Ethnic NewsWatch, GenderWatch and Alt-PressWatch – on one award-winning platform to provide users with critical viewpoints and content often left out of mainstream sources.

What’s in Diversity Collection?

  • Ethnic Newswatch contains news, magazines, journals, and newsletters from ethnic, minority, and native presses as well as many journals concerned with issues of race and ethnicity.
  • Alt-Press Watch presents big stories from small sources including unique, independent voices from respected and cited grassroots newspapers, magazines, and journals covering the arts and all viewpoints across the political spectrum.
  • GenderWatch includes journals, news and newsletters featuring many important publications that have historically initiated and sustained social movements around gender and sexual identity.
