Newsstand Spotlight: Philadelphia Daily News

News Body:
Begun in 1825, the Philadelphia Daily News, this week's ProQuest Newsstand spotlight, is a three-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize. Struggling from the beginning to be financially sound, the Daily News is currently owned by the same company that owns competitor the Philadelphia Inquirer and is now published as an edition of said newspaper. Regardless of ownership, the Philadelphia Daily News has been a fixture of the city for nearly 200 years, of which our students have access to full-text articles and blog posts back to 1983, and will be for years to come.

Newsstand Spotlight: American Israelite

News Body:
The American Israelite, this week's ProQuest Newsstand Spotlight, hails from Cincinnati and has been in print since 1854 (through our subscription, students have access to full-text articles going back to 2011). Intended to help American Jews of the Diaspora keep in touch with their religion and its cultural aspects, it was begun by the father of Reform Judaism. While current issues to tend focus more or local Ohio Jewish stories, it does also run a number of articles from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, an international news group that serves Jewish newspapers much like the Associated Press serves mainstream news media.

Title:
Newsstand Spotlight: Globe and Mail

News Body:
The Globe and Mail is Canada's largest national newspaper. Based in Toronto, it is sometimes criticized for focusing too much on Toronto issues, though there has always been efforts to move beyond that stereotype. The primary section of emphasis for The Globe and Mail is the Report on Business, which is used in Canada much like the Wall Street Journal is in the US. Our ProQuest Newsstand subscription allows students to view full text of all articles beginning in 1977.
