Finding newspaper articles


Library Services provides you with a variety of ways to search for newspaper articles in our databases and on microfilm.

You can:

  • Search for microfilm by accessing the advanced search feature of our online catalog and selecting "microfilm".  Enter in the title of the newspaper you are looking for.  The catalog will tell you if our library holds the title and also what years of the title are held.  

Online research databases

Request articles via our Interlibrary loan service

Can't find what you need?

Materials unavailable at the Jackson Library or through our statewide consortium PASCAL may be requested from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), usually free of charge to current Lander students, faculty, and staff.

How long will it take to get the item?
Books: Usually within 1-2 weeks
Articles: 3 days - 1 week

Where to pick up the ILL request:
Books: At the circulation desk
Articles: Sent to your Lander email but in some cases may need to be picked up at our circulation desk

How to make an ILL request:

  1. Check with a librarian to make sure we do not have the item.
  2. Fill out the ILL request form for either books or articles.  Provide as much information about the item as possible.  Incomplete citations will require more time and may not be available by the date you specify.
