Need a particular title? Check the library catalog

The U-M Library collects recent issues (usually the last few months) of some papers in print. We may also have online access to a newspaper digitally (via an aggregator database or subscribing to the paper's digital archive). In many cases, older issues are also kept on microfilm, viewable using digital scanners. Visit Serials and Microform Services (Room 203) in the Hatcher Library for help using both print and microfilm. 

To see what access we have, regardless of format, use the Library Catalog Search to look up the title of a particular newspaper or magazine.

Specifically, do a "Journal/Serial Title" search for the title:
