New Resource: Independent Voices
We are pleased to announce that the Rutgers community now has access to Independent Voices, a full-text database of alternative press periodicals published in the U.S. in the second half of the 20th century. Contributing to the diversity of our collections, the resource is valuable to students and faculty in a number of fields, including American Studies, History, Race and Ethnicity, Social Sciences, and Women's and Gender Studies.

The database includes full-text, easy to search issues of publications like Aegis (1978-87), Death Ship Times (Fat Albert’s) (1972-74), The Feminist Voice (1971-72), Meatball (1969-71), Off Our Backs (1970-76), The People’s Voice (1980-1983), San Francisco Good Times (1969-72), Up from the Bottom (1971-74), Where It’s At (1968-70), the Yardbird Reader (1972-76), and Zeitgeist (1965-69), among dozens of others. Browse these publications by titles, dates, contributing libraries, or by subject series like Black American, Campus Underground, Feminist, GI Press, LGBT, Latino, Literary Magazine, Little Magazine, and Native American.
As a member of the Center for Research Libraries, Rutgers received free full access to the resource, which continues to expand and may become open access in two years.
