Newspapers at Oboler Library

Newspapers in Microfilm format

The majority of the Library's newspaper holdings are in microfilm format.  The microfilm machines will print the articles you need or convert them to pdf files that can be saved on a flash drive or emailed as an attachment. Pdf files can be viewed on computers using Adobe Reader, which has a useful magnification feature.

The newspaper microfilm and machines are on the first floor of the library.  Ask for assistance at the Reference Desk.
