Indianapolis Library Adds Digitized Newspapers Collection

The Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library has added a collection of digitized issues of the Indianapolis Star newspaper from 1903-1922 to its website, for access by its cardholders or from any of the library's computers (access is via the "iLibrary Online Databases" link on the left side of their webpage). The collection can either be browsed or searched by keywords, dates, etc. It includes photographs, advertisements, obituaries and marriage announcements.

If you aren't a cardholder, or you can't get to Indianapolis to visit the library, you might want to check and see if your home library has a subscription to the ProQuest Historical Newspapers Collection - these digitized issues are also part of that database.
