ItemRevolutionary Mexico in Newspapers 1900-1929: Guide to the Microfilm Set(Benson Latin American Collection, 2002) Benavides, Adán; McAlester, Agnes L.The University of Texas at Austin General Libraries and its Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection have preserved on microfilm 227,930 pages from 560 Mexican newspaper titles which date primarily from 1900 to 1929. The project, which ran from October 2000 through September 2002, was supported, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (PA-23563-00). The majority of the newspapers (326, 58.2%) were published in the Distrito Federal; but a substantial number (234, 41.8%) were published in Mexican cities from twenty-eight states. Of particular interest are the titles that were published during the pivotal decade of the Mexican Revolution, 1910 through 1919, many of which are from cities other than Mexico City. These newspaper issues are rarely held in U.S. libraries, and some are uniquely held in the Benson Collection - 489 newspaper titles in this set came from its holdings. The Library of Congress, Tulane University, Harvard University, and Boston Public Library provided other titles and supplementary issues. Tulane University alone supplied 61 unique titles, principally newspapers from Chiapas and Yucatán. The Library of Congress lent several unique titles as well as many supplementary issues, especially from the Distrito Federal. Well-known, long-running newspapers were omitted from the project if they were available on microfilm through U.S. research institutions. The arrangement of the newspapers within the microfilm is alphabetical by state and city thereunder (reels 1 to 125) with newspapers published in the Distrito Federal following (125 to 344). Addenda and errata appear in reel 345. This guide follows that arrangement and also contains an alphabetical list of the titles, which serves as an index to the newspapers. The reel and frame number in the alphabetical list refers to the first issue microfilmed and, if applicable, to the reel of addenda and errata; different newspapers with the same title are listed separately. The microfilm is available for purchase or through interlibrary loan.

ItemIndependent Mexico in Newspapers, the 19th-Century: Guide to the Microfilm Set(University of Texas at Austin, 2005) Benavides, Adán; McAlester, AgnesThe University of Texas Libraries' Nettie Lee Benson Latin American Collection has preserved on microfilm 192,527 pages from 579 Mexican newspaper titles which date from 1807 to 1900. The project, which ran from October 2002 through March 2005, was supported, in part, by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities (PA24196-02) and the Latin American Microform Project (LAMP), a collaborative program of the Center for Research Libraries. In this microfilm set, the number of newspaper titles published within and outside of the Federal District is about equal: 280 (48%) published in the Distrito Federal, 299 (52%) published in Mexican cities from twenty-six states. The majority of pages, however, were published in Mexico City (81 %). These newspapers trace the evolution of the modern newspaper format in Mexico through its often turbulent history: from its status as a viceroyalty of the Spanish Crown to its early experiment in a monarchical form of government to its long struggle to determine a federalist system of government, with concomitant religious, social, and economic changes. Many of the newspaper issues in this set are rarely held in U.S. libraries, and some are uniquely held either by the Benson Collection or one of the eleven other participating libraries. 55% of the newspaper titles (317) and 62% of all the pages in this set came from Benson holdings. Several other libraries contributed an extraordinary number of unique titles as well as numerous supplementary issues: the Library of Congress (81 unique titles), Latin American Library at Tulane University (49), The University of Connecticut, Storrs (46), and the Sterling Library at Yale University (38). Seven other libraries contributed a total of 34 unique titles (see table 1 ). Well-known, long-running newspapers were omitted from the project if they were already available on archival microfilm through U.S. research institutions. The arrangement of the newspapers within the microfilm is alphabetical by state and city thereunder (reels 1 to 43), with newspapers published in the Distrito Federal following (reels 44 to 269). Addenda and errata appear in reels 270 to 284. This guide follows that arrangement and also ·contains an alphabetical list of the titles, which serves as an index to the newspapers. The reel and frame number in the alphabetical list refers to the first issue microfilmed and, if applicable, to the reel of addenda and errata; different newspapers with the same title are listed separately. The microfilm is available for purchase or through interlibrary loan.
