ProQuest Historical Chicago Tribune

When first incorporated, Chicago was a swampy little town populated only by a few hundred people. Soon after, the historical Chicago Tribune (1849-1986) began chronicling the city’s challenges, achievements, and evolution into one of America’s finest cities.

The Chicago Tribune provided detailed accounts of the Great Fire of 1871, which killed hundreds, nearly destroyed the city, resulted in many reforms, and spurred new growth. In 1893 and 1909, the newspaper’s special Chicago Jubilee issues described and celebrated the city’s tremendous progress. It also reported on the Progressive Movement, followed the works of Nobel Peace Prize-winning social reformer Jane Addams, exposed the activities of mobsters like Al Capone, and reported on the city’s machine politics. To incisively convey ideas, opinions, and emotions, the Chicago Tribune relied on Pulitzer Prize-winning John T. McCutcheon’s editorial cartoons.

ProQuest Statistical Abstracts of the World

Librarians have told us that the demand for international data at their institutions has increased dramatically in recent years. Often those demands go beyond the scope of the data collected and maintained by the World Bank and other international organizations. A student might need socioeconomic data for a foreign city or sub-national area; a professor might need long-term trends in the health behavior or consumer spending in a particular country.

Users will be able to browse the tabular content of each compendia section by section, apply table-specific filters to narrow results, and search across all content or within a single country as well as view and download a table in a spreadsheet.

This series is available in online streaming video in a single, cross-searchable collection designed specifically to meet the needs of researchers, teaching faculty, and students. The videos have been restored to their original luster by HBO Archives, allowing viewers to experience these historic films as audiences did in earlier decades.

With its first appearance on American motion picture screens in February 1935, The March of Time® startled journalists, filmmakers, and audiences alike with its controversial topics and unique approach to newsreels. The “issues,” as the newsreels were called, were a blend of confrontational journalism and docudrama, often using actors to stage events that had not been photographed on newsreel cameras. The series began with brief segments in the 1930s and eventually grew in length and scope to television programs of in-depth coverage of a single topic. Though extremely popular worldwide, the series eventually ceded viewers to the popularity of television programming, ending movie theatre presentations in 1951 and airing its last television segment in 1967.
