According to recent research, the U.S. is home to the world’s fifth-largest Spanish-speaking community, and Spanish is the most widely taught non-English language in secondary schools and institutions of higher education. Spanish is spoken by more than 30 million U.S. citizens at home (or 12% of the population, a large portion of which is bilingual). It is the second most common U.S. language, with trends suggesting that its usage will continue to grow rapidly.

Serving the large and growing Spanish-speaking population
News in Spanish provides Web-based access to the complete electronic editions of more than 20 Spanish-language newspapers published in major U.S. cities from Florida to California. It also includes tens of thousands of current and archived full-text articles from other news sources and complete electronic newspaper editions across Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Columbia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Spain. All news and information content is written in Spanish, rather than translated from other languages.

With this specialized, value-priced resource, school libraries can inexpensively extend the domestic or international news coverage provided by their America’s Newspapers or Access World News collection. News in Spanish can be cross-searched with these collections, and it shares the same user-friendly interface. However, it can also be browsed, searched and purchased individually.

Spanish-language interface and coverage of current issues
News in Spanish not only features a wealth of primary source information from Spanish-language news sources and services, but also it enables students and teachers to choose between two versions of the interface—one in English and the other with all search, navigation and help in Spanish (America’s Newspapers also offers this option). Beyond, News in Spanish is an ideal resource for Spanish speakers interested in researching current issues, and it is also a useful tool for those learning Spanish or English as a second language. News in Spanish offers multiple perspectives on a wide range of current issues in the U.S. and abroad, including:

    • Spanish history & culture
    • Government & politics
    • Entertainment
    • Sports
    • People
    • Religion
    • International relations
    • Environment
    • Immigration
    • Civil rights
    • Law
    • And much more
