Newspapers & Microforms

Newspapers

The UNH Library subscribes to regional, national, and international newspapers in print, electronic, and microform formats.

Newspapers in Print

  • The print collection is held in the New Book Room on Level Three of Dimond Library.
  • Back issues are located in Dimond Level G closed stacks and need to be requested through the Circulation Desk.
  • We receive newspapers Monday through Friday only, though our newspapers do include Saturday and Sunday papers.
  • We may receive certain papers several days after their publication date.
  • Search our catalog to find specific titles as well as the dates that we hold in our back-files as they vary from title to title

Electronic

  • We have an extensive collection of newspapers available electronically, including both current and historic titles.
  • Use the newspaper databases to find articles or search collections.
  • Newspapers can also be found through the Full Text Journals search box or the library catalog.

Many older titles are also held in microforms.

Microforms

Location

  • Adjacent to the Natural Sciences Resource Center in Room 225 on Level Two of Dimond Library – newspapers, magazines, journals, various collections including ERIC documents
  • Room 210 – Government publications, primarily U.S. federal depository items and miscellaneous other collections
  • Dimond Level G closed stacks; these collections can be requested online

We have three formats of Microforms: microFILM, microFICHE, and microCARD. All formats are micro-reproductions of print materials. Viewing microforms requires special machines that we have in Dimond Library, Room 225.

Printing and Scanning Microforms

  • Printing directly from the microforms machine is 20 cents per page (coin only)
  • Printing through networked printers is 10 cents per page (Cat’s Cache only)
  • Scanning to digital formats is free
  • If you are a UNH student, faculty, or staff member, we will scan and deliver PDFs of microforms to you as part of our Document Delivery service. Place your requests through your Interlibrary Loan account.
