Is the newspaper you want available in microfilm?

To access microfilm copies of your newspaper/magazine titles, go to the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of the library and ask for the newspaper/magazine title you want to see and the year and month you need.  

You can view the microfilm at one of the microfilm stations by the desk.  Some of the stations have capacity for printing and some of the stations have the capacity for printing and emailing digital copies of the articles you select.  The staff member at the desk can help you if you have any questions.
