Yale University Library has acquired the access to a newspaper database of modern China: Sin Wan Pao 新聞報, 1893-1949. The database allows five concurrent users and has been added to the Library’s Quicksearch, Find a Database by Title, and Chinese Studies subject guide-Newspapers. Information of off-campus access to Yale subscribed electric resources can be found through here.
Xin wen bao (Sin Wan Pao 新聞報), also known as "The News", was first published on February 17, 1893. Along with Shen Bao 申報, it was one of the most widely circulated Chinese newspapers in Shanghai during modern China (150,000 copies in 1928). The database provides full access to digital copies of all issues from 1893 to 1949 and includes 365,000 high-resolution pages in texts, advertisements and pictures. The database is on Shanghai Library’s Quan guo bao kan suo yin 全国报刊索引 platform along with Late Qing/Republican Periodical Full-text Database 晚清/民國時期期刊全文數據庫 (1833-1949) and The North-China Daily News & Herald Newspapers and Hong Lists (1850-1951) 字林洋行中英文报纸全文数据库 (1850-1951).
