Indiana Newspaper Holdings Guide
The Indiana State Library maintains a microfilm archive of newspapers from around the state. Use the Indiana Newspaper Microfilm Holdings index in Indiana Legacy to search our collection.
The Indiana State Library has a small collection of Out-of-State Microfilm Holdings.
The Indiana newspaper microfilm archive is located on the 2nd floor of the Indiana State Library and is open to the public. Bring a flash drive and save at no charge, or it is $0.25 to print. Most of these reels are available to be borrowed through inter-library loan.
