Indiana Historical Society Adds Free Access to Indiana Digitized Newspapers

The Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis, in partnership with Newspaper Archive, has added free access to digitized Indiana newspapers for visitors to the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center (located at 450 W. Ohio St. in downtown Indianapolis).

For 25 years, the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) supported the Indiana Newspaper Project, which gathered historic newspapers from around the state to be microfilmed by IHS’s Preservation Imaging staff. In 2011, IHS entered into an agreement with Newspaper Archive to digitize 5,625 reels of microfilm, which represents more than 2.5 million newspaper page images dated 1924 or earlier. Now visitors to IHS's William Henry Smith Memorial Library can search or browse these Indiana newspapers for free through a site that is co-hosted and supported by Newspaper Archive.

Access to these Indiana newspapers, as well as newspapers from all 50 states and several other countries, is also available via subscription at www.NewspaperArchive.com.
