Newspapers on Microfilm

These are located on the first floor of the Holland Library in the Microforms Room. There are microform reading machines you can use; if you want to make copies there are a few machines that you can use to read, print (requires Cougar Cash on your Cougar Card), or scan microforms (if you are going to scan, be sure to bring a thumb drive or external hard drive). To find a particular newspaper on microfilm, search by title (in quotation marks") in Search It, the WSU Libraries catalog; there is also a loose-leaf notebook in the Microforms room that can be consulted.
