Newspapers - The Microfilm Solution

     

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.
