Resources on current events and topics in the news

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. Older issues are kept on microfilm, viewable using digital scanners. Visit Serials and Microforms (Room 203) in the Hatcher Graduate Library for both print and microfilm. We may also have access to a newspaper digitally (via an aggregator database or subscribing to the paper's digital archive).

Use the library catalog's Advanced Search to look up the name of a particular newspaper or magazine, and see what access we have regardless of format:

Do a "Journal/Serial Title" search for the name of the periodical
