Finding Newspapers

Search for a specific newspaper title to determine if Rod Library subscribes to it by clicking on  the Books/Media tab on the library home page. Then do a Browse search and type in the newspaper title (HINT: change the dropdown menu to Title when searching).

Many newspapers have gone through title changes so be sure to check for a Continues or Cont'd by (Continued by) statement in the catalog record. This will indicate previous or newer titles by which the newspaper was/is known.  Most newspaper microfilms are filed under only one version of a title, no matter what the title changes were.

The following link will go to a library catalog entry, including the call number and location of the book on the shelves:
