The Indiana Historical Society offers states oldest newspapers on microfilm or for digitization. For 25 years using the highest standards, over ten million pages of Indiana historic and current newspapers were captured onto microfilm. Over 19,000 master reels from the IHS collection are now in chilled storage, preserving these images for the next 300-500 years. Many local Indiana libraries and universities make these films available for research locally. All duplicate negatives of the master reels are still available for purchase by libraries wishing to fill gaps in their collection, or replace heavily used copies that may show wear. Titles of newspapers by county with inclusive dates may be searched on-line catalog at www.indianahistory.org/Microfilm_catalog.asp For more information, call David Turk; Manager, Preservation Imaging at 317-232-4592.
The IHS has recently granted permission to the Readex American Historical Newspaper Project to digitize several reels of the Indiana Democrat from 1830-1841. For permission to digitize microfilm produced and copyrighted by the IHS, and associated fees, contact Ramona Duncan-Huse, Senior Director, Conservation ad Preservation Imaging at 317-234-0093.
