Beebe Library keeps physical microfilm for the Boston Globe newspaper back to 1985, but you need to use special microfilm equipment in the Reference Department to view it. This new subscription to the digital microfilm can be accessed online from any computer in the library, or from home as well. You cannot search the text, but you can view or print images of Globe pages back to 2008. For more sophisticated searches, or earlier years, be sure to use our separate online subscription to the Globe’s digital archives going back to 1980.
