UCL now has access to Le Monde, 1944-2000 (ProQuest Historical Newspapers)

Written in the French language and dating from 1944 to 2000 ProQuest’s Le Monde archive covers leading issues and events, such as World War II and the Fifth Republic, French, European and international politics, society and business. Le Monde was created at the request of General Charles de Gaulle as the German army was vacating Paris during World War II. At a time when other Parisian newspapers were accused of Nazi sympathies or other political alliances, Le Monde was established for its political independence, and has been ever since. Le Monde is also renowned for its balance in coverage, deep analysis of historical events, and focus on journalistic quality and high intellectual standards.

With cover-to-cover full-page images, article-level indexing and searchable text, users can retrieve all types of content from ProQuest’s Le Monde archive, including news articles, photos, advertisements, obituaries, cartoons and more.
