Archive of Liberian newspapers

The Cooperative Africana Materials Project (CAMP) recently completed the latest phase of its effort to preserve newspapers from Liberia. Michigan State University contributed most of the newspapers. CAMP efforts have resulted in a collection that is unique in North America and will now be available to CAMP and members of the Center for Research Libraries(CRL).

The newspapers microfilmed by CAMP and listed below cover this turbulent time in Liberia from a variety of perspectives:
