Newspapersthree newspapers stacked on top of each other.

The library maintains significant collections of current and historical newspapers from the dawn of print journalism to today. These collections can be found in four locations:

  • digital, in library databases
  • on microfilm, viewable on a microfilm machine
  • in bound volumes, on library shelves.
  • in the Current Periodicals area of the Learning Commons on the Lower Level
