Detroit Sunday Journal Digitized by WSU Libraries

The Detroit Sunday Journal, a weekly tabloid newspaper that was established in 1995 by striking union workers from the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News, has recently been digitized and made publicly available by the Wayne State University Libraries. The newspaper covered current events, but also had a special focus on local news and labor issues. It published over 200 editions between November of 1995 and November of 1999, despite the strike formally ending in 1997.

More information on the collection can be found in this Detroit News article. The Detroit Sunday Journal collection can be accessed at: http://digital.library.wayne.edu/digitalcollections/item?id=wayne:collectionDSJ
