Newton News Index

There is a subject card index to newspapers starting 1866 through 1999 located in drawers in the Special Collection Room (Note: Indexing gap for the years of 1930-1935). Next to the drawers is a biography card index covering both newspapers and books for the same time period.

Starting in 1999 this online Newton News Index version was created.

The 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.

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.
