Newspaper Archive Online

Another great digital resource has been made available online.

Working together the University Library at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and Indianapolis Recorder newspaper have put this African-American newspaper online.

This newspapers online range from 1899 to 2005, totaling over 5000 issues. You can visit the archive here.   This searchable archive lets you zoom in to read the text and has a navigation panel to the upper left of the image (you are here and the text is asked for is highlighted in pink).

I even managed to find one reference to the Louisiana Purchase Exposition.  Head on over and see what this newspaper printed on your topic of choice.
