Goddard Library is proud to offer ProQuest's Diversity Collection, which contains three separate but cross-searchable collections: Ethnic NewsWatch, Alt-PressWatch, and GenderWatch. This collection focuses on ethnic, minority, and native presses, grassroots newspapers and magazines, and journals, news and newsletters focusing on gender and sexuality. Ethnic NewsWatch would be a great database to utilize for any research concerning indigenous populations both here and around the world. Many of the journals above can accessed through this collection!
