Independent Voices

Independent voices:  An Open Access Collection of an Alternative Press is a four-year project to digitize over 1 million pages from the magazines, journals, and newspapers of the alternative press archives of participating libraries. Starting with collections by feminists and the dissident GI press, the collection will grow to include small literary magazines, underground newspapers, LGBT periodicals, the minority press (Latino, Black and Native American) and the extreme right-wing press.

Independent VoicesColumbia and other participating libraries are sharing the cost of creating the database.  Once the project is complete the content will become open access.

If you have a questions about this database, or any other research question, please visit, call, email or text us.
