Ethnic NewsWatch is an interdisciplinary, bilingual (English and Spanish) full-text database of newspapers, magazines and journals of ethnic, minority, and native presses. These titles offer a wide range of viewpoints not offered in the mainstream press. The database includes over 2.5 million articles from more than 300 publications. It combines two distinct collections: the current news source Ethnic NewsWatch and the historical file Ethnic NewsWatch: A History.

The current news source, Ethnic NewsWatch, includes publications of African American, Arab American, Asian American, Eastern European, Hispanic, Jewish, Muslim, Native American, and many more ethnic presses. The historical file, Ethnic NewsWatch: A History, is more limited in scope; it includes publications of Native American, African American, and Hispanic American presses.
