Indiana Newspaper Indexes

About the Index

The database is by no means a complete index of these newspapers. The Indiana State Library's Newspaper Collection has all of the necessary issues available on microfilm for use within the library.

Obtaining copies: You may place a request for scans through the Ask-A-Librarian service. Many titles are available via interlibrary loan through your local library. Some may also be available fully searchable within Hoosier State Chronicles.

Any questions? Please contact the Indiana Division Reference Desk: (317) 232-3670.
