UI Libraries has newspapers in several formats: paper, microfilm and online. Current newspapers in print and older newspapers in microfilm can be requested at the Main Library Service Desk, first floor of the Main Library. Microfilm contains black-and-white photos of newspaper pages. The reading room has microfilm readers that enlarge and digitize images; bring a flash drive to save images. See the guides linked below for more information about newspapers and news sources.
