Smathers Libraries, University of Florida are proud to announce the online launch of the Diario de Pernambuco starting with the first issue on November 7, 1825 through March 1863. The Diario de Pernambuco is acknowledged as the oldest newspaper in circulation in Latin America. The issues from 1825 1923 offer insights into early Brazilian commerce, social affairs, politics, family life, slavery, and such. Published in the port of Recife, Brazil, the Diario con tains numerous announcements of maritime movements, crop production, legal affairs, and cultural matters. The 19 th century includes reporting on the rise of Brazilian nationalism as the Empire gave way to the earliest expressions of the Brazilian republic. The 1910s and 1920s are years of economic and artistic change, with surging exports of sugar and coffee pushing revenues and allowing for rapid expansions of infrastructure, popular expression, and national politics.

The first phase of the digital project to digitize the Diario de Pernambuco is now complete with the first issue from November 7, 1825 through March 1863 now all openly online for worldwide access. The Latin American Collection has submitted a proposal for funding a second ph ase of this important project.
