Locating newspapers in print and microfilm

NOTE: The lower level of the Library is closed until further notice. Current information about changes to library policies and availability of materials can be found at the University Library's COVID-19 page.

The University Library currently subscribes to the paper copy of several local, national and foreign newspapers.  Back issues of some of these titles are retained in microfilm.  Current issues of newspapers are housed alphabetically on display shelving in the Current Periodicals Reading Room on the lower level of the library, off of the Innovate. Make. Create. Center (IMC).  Back issues are retained in storage until the microfilm arrives, or for a reasonable length of time. 

Back issues of newspapers on microfilm are located in the Periodicals Room on the lower level.  The reels are arranged alphabetically by title and chronologically by date in the cabinets labeled "Newspapers."  Help in locating the microfilm you need and in using the microfilm readers is available at the Reference Desk on the first floor.

Printing/Saving/Copying

Microform reader/printers are located in the Periodicals Room. Directions for use are posted on or nearby, and library staff are available for assistance.  Copies are generated in PDF format and can be saved to disk, emailed, or printed. Printing electronic copies is 10¢ per page using the SUNYCard debit system.  Guest SUNYCards can be purchased from the terminal available in each of the three libraries.
