New Research Databases: Ethnic NewsWatch and GenderWatch

The economy may not be great, but Palomar College Library still provides wonderful resources to help with class assignments. New for Spring semester 2009 (and available now, just in time for Fall finals!) are two research databases that greatly expand our offering of electronic resources:


This includes scholarly journals, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, regional publications, books, and NGO, government and special reports that focus on how gender impacts a broad spectrum of subject areas. With archival material dating back to 1970 in some cases, GenderWatch is a repository of historical perspectives on the evolution of the women’s movement, men’s studies, the transgendered community, and the changes in gender roles over the years.

Ethnic Newswatch

This is an interdisciplinary, bilingual (English and Spanish) and comprehensive full text database of the newspapers, magazines and journals of the ethnic, minority and native press. ENW titles offer additional viewpoints to the mainstream press.

Both databases use the familiar ProQuest search interface employed by several other Palomar databases (ProQuest Newspapers, Historical New York Times, and Historical Los Angeles Times). Off-campus access is available with your campus e-services login.

Additional information about these and other databases are available on our Research Databases web page. Please contact Tamara Weintraub, Serials Librarian, with any questions, comments, or recommendations.
