Here’s a news release about our recent upload of newspapers to the Indiana State Library’s Newspapers.com portal
For those of you who’ve been missing the free Newspapers.com content via INSPIRE, we’ve restored the connection.
Accessing the content is slightly different. For instructions, visit our blog post Accessing Newspapers via INSPIRE.
32,524 pages of the Steuben Republican from 1860-1939 were added during the last month.
As of June 4, 2015, INSPIRE.in.gov is being redesigned.
Consequently, the Indiana State Library’s portal to Newspapers.com is currently unavailable.
We’re working to restore access to this resource as quickly as possible. I’ll be sure to blog again as soon as it’s back up.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience.
Don’t forget you can still search over 250,000 Indiana newspaper pages at Hoosier State Chronicles.
Over the last two months, Newspapers.com uploaded another 40,000 pages of the Greenfield Daily Reporter. Since the Indiana State Library is providing this content to Newspapers.com, the content is freely available to Indiana residents through INSPIRE. Click here for access instructions. Currently, there are 1,058,866 Indiana newspaper pages available through the INSPIRE portal.
At the end of June, Newspapers.com should wrap up digitizing the Greenfield Daily Reporter through 1963. The Steuben Republican from 1860-1963 will be the next title added.
We recently uploaded another 21,676 pages!
Included in the upload are:
- More issues of the Indiana Tribüne back to the first issue of August 17, 1878.
