Microfilm is a way to preserve printed material so that it takes up less space and can last for hundreds of years.
If you have the citation information for a historic newSpaper or magazine article:
- Use the A to Z Publications list to see if it is available at SU in Microfilm.
- If we do not have the article, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to have it delivered as a PDF to your email address.
Or, if you have a very specific time period in mind, you can look at the microfilm version of a newspaper or use the index, like the index to the New York Times, to find historic articles on your topic.
