Newspapers and Journals

We hold a wide range of newspapers and journals relating to Mayo from the earliest newspaper in 1830 to the parish annuals which are popular annual sellers to this very day.

Most of our newspapers are held on microfilm in our Local Studies Dept. in Castlebar though some can be searched digitally in selected library branches.

We try to collect all journals and magazines published locally. The major historical titles are:

Castlebar Parish Magazine (annually, from 1971).

Welcome to Mayo County Library's collection of historical newspaper illustrations. These illustrations date mainly from the mid to late 19th century and the majority are from two publications: "The Illustrated London News" and "The Graphic".

They provide a contemporary pictorial view of some of the most significant episodes in Irish history: the famine of the 1840s and 1880s the Land War including the campaign of the Land League and the Boycott affair. Famous Irish historical figures depicted include Davitt, Parnell and Boycott.

Mayo County Library wishes to acknowledge the generosity of Maggie Land Blanck, Brooklyn, New York, who donated a number of the illustrations in this collection.

There are over a hundred illustrations available to view on the website. Please use the page selection bar above the images to navigate through the site.

&ldquoOnly wanted to say thank you. Received my first copy of Russian Life today. Wish I had subscribed sooner. The magazine was more and better than I expected. Thank you again.&rdquo

Daniel P.

&ldquoRussian Life is the greatest! More than any other publication I receive, I look forward to its articles, its great photographs and art work, its balanced perspective! I also enjoy reading about the parts of Russia that I know (the cities) AND the hidden, yet equally fascinating, parts which I have not had an opportunity to visit. Keep up the good work and THANK YOU for a most wonderful publication. &rdquo

Mary Jane Bolin

&ldquoI debated for two years whether or not to order Russian Life magazine. I just received my first issue and all I can say is that I wasted two years of what I bet was wonderful writing. What a beautiful, insightful, well written piece of literature! We adopted our precious daughter from Russia two years ago and my great grandparents hail from Russia. We want to learn more about this diverse and culturally rich country, not only for the benefit of our daughter, but also for the rest of our family. Thank you for your talent and efforts.&rdquo

Erica Ploski

&ldquoThis was a Christmas gift for my daughter, who has a degree in Russian Area Studies. She just received her card and first magazine today. she was THRILLED. &rdquo

Deb F.

&ldquoI have had a subscription to Russian Life for at least three years. I think that it is the best publication about a foreign culture to be found anywhere. Its content is a combination of National Geographic, People, Time and Fortune. The quality of writing is excellent. the physical production, color, photos, and layout is as professional as any magazine. I recommend it to any individual or organization with any level of interest in Russia and Russian culture.&rdquo

Jim Clayton

&ldquoRussian Life both entertains and informs me. Its broad range of high quality, well illustrated articles makes it fascinating and has me reading every issue from cover to cover.&rdquo

David M Rowell

&ldquoRussian Life Magazine happens to be the premier glossy type magazine available! This publication is by far, one of, if not, the best periodicals available on the market today. I do not, nor ever have had, a magazine subscription that equals the caliber of this one. It is not only read in my household, but is also passed on to those in Magadan, Novosibirsk & Moscow with equal enthusiasm! As for a wide span of information about Russia and its people, this magazine is on the cutting edge of creating curiosity!&rdquo

Mark Gwynn

&ldquoI recently subscribed to the Russian Life magazine and I am very pleased. The articles are very interesting and educational along with some fabulous photos. I also received 301 Things About Russia. I am in the process of learning! Thank you very much.&rdquo

Ralph F. Blecha

&ldquoI think the magazine is just great! I actually wait for it and read each issue word for word at least twice. It struck me as very strange that many of my friends from Russia have never heard of the magazine. When I gave them a few issues they were so delighted! They just couldn't understand how they didn't know about it. Please keep up the great work.&rdquo


Russian Language Journal / Русский язык

RLJ is a bilingual scholarly review of research, resources, symposia, and publications pertinent to the study and teaching of Russian language and culture, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary research in Russian language, culture and the acquisition of Russian as a second language.

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

Terms Related to the Moving Wall Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive. Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title. Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.


Women’s magazines in the United States

The bond with advertising is probably most evident in magazines for women, since they are the greatest buyers of consumer goods. In the United States, up to the mid-1930s, such magazines were largely “trade-papers for home-makers.” There were exceptions, such as True Story (founded 1919), which concentrated on entertainment, and Vogue, which introduced readers to a wider world, but more typical was Better Homes and Gardens (founded 1922), which gave fresh impetus to the trend toward “service” by helping both men and women in the running of their homes. In this area, of course, advertising pressure can be considerable—e.g., for editorial support of a new product—but editors have usually contained it within some limits.

An innovation in the 1930s was the store-distributed magazine. One of the first and most successful was Family Circle (founded 1932), given away in Piggly Wiggly supermarkets until 1946, when it was sold as a family monthly. Equally successful were Woman’s Day (founded 1937), published by a subsidiary of the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, and Better Living (founded 1951), sponsored by the Super Market Institute. During the 1930s women’s magazines broadened their base to combat falling circulations and to meet changes in taste, as they did again in the 1950s, in a similar crisis.

By the late 1980s scores of political and literary magazines of broadly feminist sympathies had been established, one of the most prominent being Ms. (founded 1972), a nonprofit magazine with a circulation of about 500,000. Another general trend has been to direct appeal toward younger women, not only in the old magazines but also in such newer ones as Seventeen (founded 1944), Ingenue (founded 1959), and Teen (founded 1957).

The importance of learning another language
It even saved Goldie's life. See how and why.


Russia is bordered by more countries than any other country in the world, with a total of 16 countries sharing its long land border. The countries with whom Russia shares its land border include North Korea, China, Norway, Finland, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Poland, Georgia, Mongolia, Latvia, Estonia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, and Lithuania. An additional two countries whose sovereignty is partially recognized, also share a land border with Russia: Abkhazia and South Ossetia. Russia's land is about 12,577 miles in length, which is the world's second-longest and only exceeded in length by China's land border. And WOW, There are ELEVEN time zones across Russia.

Russian Teacher hints, Advice and Tips

I know from my own experience that being on a continual path of self-improvement is an absolute necessity toward be a good teacher. Hang out with other Russian educators that you admire. Watch them closely and learn from them. Imitation is the greatest compliment! Join your language associations (AATSEEL http://www.aatseel.org or ACTR - http://www.americancouncils.org/actrMembership.php) plus two foreign language teacher associations (state and national: ACTFL- ( http://www.actfl.org ) and attend their annual meetings on a regular basis. Get involved anyway you can with each. Rub noses with people at the TOP. Get to know the officers personally. Keep in contact with them. Use these association offerings, suggestions and resources.

Whenever you can in your own environment, ask to observe colleagues in action in their Russian classroom. Pick up ideas that work for them and adopt and adapt them to you own classroom. Always be on the "lookout" for new ideas, new means of teaching, new ways to incorporate things that work for others into your own methodology. Don't hesitate to ask questions of Russian teachers who have had much success as to how and why that happened. I used to observe elementary teachers and how they interacted with their young students. Always something to learn. "Learn from the mistakes of others. You'll never live long enough to make all of them yourself." Another that I always enjoyed is "If you think you're GREEN, you'll grow - if you think you're RIPE, you'll rot." All true. Don't rot! That's an axiom that will never grow old. You may think that you are the best, but you're not. There is always someone better than you. (I learned this playing basketball) Learn from them. Know what the best practices are and be aware of the current online resources that can be of great help to you and your Russian students.

Keep your Russian classroom presentations FRESH. Keep up with innovation and the changing needs of your students by incorporating technology such as computer use, iPhones, iPads, e-mail and a host of other innovations into your routine classroom activities to communicate with others in the target language and to access authentic resources. Stay current with options and trends in the field such as the National Standards and know how to incorporate them into your daily plans. Hopefully these few ideas will aid in your growth and success. Stay with it. Don't throw in the towel like many have, but again as I point out above, whatever new ideas you discover, you must first adopt and then adapt . Not everything you see elsewhere will work for you as I have personally learned. You must adapt those ideas to your own Russian classroom. There are a host of great ideas available on all these sites, but they are only as successful as you will make them. And perhaps most important of all, do ask your Russian students often how they feel about what they are doing and learning and what they enjoy the most and the least in your classroom. Most of all, do enjoy your students and share yourself with them. [They don't care how much you know until they know how much you CARE] I hope that you picked up some ideas here that will aid in your total success. Have fun in your Russian classroom. (ps I picked up these ideas in a recent dream and wanted to share with each of you) I'm 78 years old now, but never too old to learn more myself and never too old to share ideas. Best yet, why not be learning another language yourself? Check out one of the sites above. It is a great means to experience first-hand what your students are feeling. Now you are "walking in their shoes." Don't forget to have FUN doing it.

Battle of Stalingrad

The Battle of Stalingrad (23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943) was the largest confrontation of World War II, in which Germany and its allies fought the Soviet Union for control of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in Southern Russia.

Marked by fierce close quarters combat and direct assaults on civilians in air raids, it was the largest (nearly 2.2 million personnel) and bloodiest (1.8–2 million killed, wounded or captured) battle in the history of warfare. After their defeat at Stalingrad, the German High Command had to withdraw vast military forces from the Western Front to replace their losses. Wikipedia
