Let Us Be Part of Your Research

As the premier archives on Indiana and the Old Northwest, we are here to share Indiana’s stories. Whether you are just starting or deep in the trenches of your research, we are sure to have something you need. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we hope to be able to point you in the right direction.

On-Site Online Resources

Researchers can search newspapers from Indiana published before 1924 – and papers from other states – on NewspaperARCHIVE in the William H. Smith Memorial Library by keyword or browse particular issues at no cost. To subscribe to this entire database outside the History Center, visit www.newspaperarchive.com.

The library provides free on-site access to several other online databases such as AncestryLibrary, American Civil War Database and others.

Access to a variety of Indiana Records can be found online. The Indiana Records document includes websites, contacts and free online databases. It does not include all of the sources available, but serves as a starting point for research into Indiana resources.
