Microfilm allows you to browse the entire issues of a newspaper. Knowing the exact or approximate date of an event is essential. Using the Large-Monitor microfilm reader helps you to locate articles on your topic and then crop, enhance, download, and print your article. Des Moines Register, and the Waterloo Courier are just a few of the newspapers available on microfilm.
You are ALWAYS welcome to ask a librarian for help with the microfilm and the scanners.
When you're done with the microfilm, return it to the box, and put the box on top of the gray filing cabinets.
Choose "Search" to access "Advanced Search".
Advanced Search will allow you to limit your search by date and by location (state).
You may download pages from newspapers for your project by clicking on "file" icon (highlighted in black below).
You will then want to save this file as a PDF.
Note - you should rename the PDF file so that it includes the name and date of the newspaper.
