Muncie Times Collection Expanded

The Muncie Times Newspaper digital collection in the DMR was recently expanded by 69 issues/2822 pages, bringing the online archive current up to December, 2010. The issues are completely full-text searchable and cover recent topics such as the Kwanzaa celebration, the passing of Selma, Indiana educator Alan Kent Garringer, and Forbes Magazine naming Mrs. Obama the world's most powerful woman.
The timing of this expansion coincides nicely with the newest Archives and Collections exhibit, running February 7-April 1, 2011: The Muncie Times: 20 Years of Service to theAfrican-American Community.
