Newton Free Library The door to your imagination
Newton News Index is an online database of citations for newspaper and magazine articles about Newton, Massachusetts and its citizens. The index allows for searching articles using keywords and returns the publication name, date, and page number where the full article may be located. Most of the articles indexed are from the city's local newspaper the Newton Tab. The coverage begins with publication dates in 1999.
You may search by Year, Publication, Keyword(s), or any combination thereof. Microfilm of the newspapers are available at the Library. Please view search guidelines or ask a Librarian for assistance.
You may search by Year, Publication, Keyword(s), or any combination thereof. Any of the search boxes can be left blank to increase the number of returned results.
Entering one or more keywords in the keyword box will limit the search results to just articles in which all of the entered keywords appear.
The keyword box searches citation headlines, article authors (if known), and citation keywords.
Searches are not case sensitive (e.g.: "aldermen" or "Aldermen" will produce the same result).
Two or more words in the keyword box will retrieve citations containing all words (e.g.: "ice skating" will show articles that contain both words "ice" and "skating". Citations that contain only one word, but not the others will not be shown). If you are using multiple keywords and not finding many citations, decrease the number of keywords. Exact phrase matching with quotation marks is not supported.
Selecting a Publication from the drop-down list to specify the newspaper or magazine will limit the search to just that publication. If you are not certain about the publication in which the article of interest appeared, do not select anything from this list.
Selecting a Year from the drop-down list to specify the year will limit the search to articles published in the selected year. If you are not certain about the year in which the article of interest was published, do not select anything from this list.
