The Boston Globe

The Boston Globe library collection spans the majority of the Globe’s history, with images, newspaper clippings, and additional reference materials collected by its reference and research staff. The library collection includes: Photographs, Photographic Negatives, Newspaper Clippings, Maps, and City Guides.

The approximately 1.65 million photographs included in the collection were produced by a combination of Globe staff photographers, freelancers, and wire services, such as the Associated Press. They cover the Boston experience — its people, places, and institutions — as well as national and international topics and stories of import.
