Snow Index to Brunswick Newspapers
The Snow Index, which indexes microfilm of the Brunswick weekly newspapers from 1853 through December, 1960, was created by Richard Snow with additional indexing contributions from John Goff. Online publication has been supported by the Times Record, the Bowdoin College Library, and the Curtis Memorial Library. Please note that this is an index to citations, NOT an index that leads to online full text.
Where to find Brunswick newspaper microfilm
Microfilm of the Brunswick Telegraph, the Brunswick Record, and the Times Record is available for you to use at the Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick. Microfilms are located on the first floor of the Library, in the “glass room” located between the lending services desk and the downstairs reference desk. Staff at the downstairs reference desk can help you find film and load it on the microfilm reader-printer. Prints are 10c each.
Copies from the microfilm are not of high quality. Text is generally readable but pictures usually turn out as gray blurs.
If you’re not planning to visit Brunswick, the staff of the Curtis Memorial Library will make copies of articles from the newspaper microfilm and mail the copies to you. For this service we charge $15.
Contact us at the Reference Desk 725-5242 extension 510 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your postal mailing address as well as information about the article you want.
Bowdoin College Library also has a set of these microfilm. They do not make copies for patrons, but do have several reader/printers and the public may use them in their library.
