[UPDATE: This trial has now finished as of 30th March, 2022.]
I am pleased to report that the Vere Harmsworth Library has organised trial access to Jet Magazine Archive for Bodleian Readers. The trial will run until the 30th March, 2022.
Jet Magazine Archive covers the civil rights movement, politics, education, and other social topics with an African American focus. When completed, it will include over 3,000 issues providing a broad view of news, culture, and entertainment from its first issue in 1951 through 2014.
Currently the database has only released the issues from the 1980-1989, which are the issues available during our Trial.
Users can search across the articles using full-text search, or select specific issues, years or themes. Each article is indexed with relevant keywords. Researchers can also view images and advertisements within each issue.
The Vere Harmsworth Library has also organised trial access to Colonial America, which you can find out more about on our previous blogpost.
You can access Jet Magazine Archive using your Single Sign On here.
