Beginning in 2011, when the Friends of Olin-Turville website was created, some of the hyperlinks on our website redirected you to through BadgerLink. BadgerLink is Wisconsin's Online Library, providing Wisconsin residents with licensed content not available through regular search engines. BadgerLink is a service provided by the Department of Public Instruction and our resources and staff are paid for with state funding and federal funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. On June 30, 2018, the contract that BadgerLink had with ended and was not renewed due to cost considerations. You can read more about this decision HERE. On October 29, 2018, BadgerLink anounced a new contract with to provide free access to historical newspaper articles for BadgerLink users.

Unfortunately, this new contract does not allow free access to newspaper articles from the Capital Times or the Wisconsin State Journal from about 1923 to 2005. While It is not clear why this is the case, the reasoning for this may be that Madison Newspapers, owners of the Capital Times and Wisconsin State Journal has a contract with to provide access to their historical newspapers. Copyright laws are probably in play here which forces to block free access to newspaper articles from these newspapers that were published after 1922. However, you can still access newspaper articles from this time period for these newspapers through both and if you pay for a subscription with either of these companies.
