This digitisation programme consists of the six regional archives of the news reporting network, The Associated Press, cover the period from 1848 to 2009. Although The Associated Press originated in the United States and has always had its Head Offices there, it has from the beginning been an international news operation with a direct presence in Australia and New Zealand. It’s ‘Bureau Chiefs’ and teams of reporters stationed in Australia and New Zealand have reported news from our part of the world to the international community. Conversely, news stories written by AP reporters in all other parts of the globe have from the beginning been syndicated in most major Australian and New Zealand newspapers (and continue to be today). For these reasons the archives of The Associated Press, apart from their significance for research in areas like American Studies, European Studies, International Affairs, and Media and Journalism Studies, represent valuable primary source materials for research into our own political and social affairs and how those affairs have been presented around the world.
