History Day research in Microforms & Newspapers

The UW Libraries has an extensive collection of historic newspapers on microfilm housed in the Microforms & Newspapers Collection (MicNews), located on the round floor of Suzzallo Library. 

Before you visit, be sure that you know the key facts about your topic.  Know the 4 Ws: 

What?  Who?  When?  Where?


To save time, students should begin their research using e-newspapers.  Search the historic New York Times at your school through your local public library's website. 


Finding Newspapers on Microfilm @ UW


Microfilmed newspapers, including many from Washington State are housed in the Microform & Newspaper Collections, located on the ground floor of Suzzallo Library.

The best way to identify available newspapers on microfilm is to use the card catalog located in MicNews.  You can also search UW WorldCat for the newspaper title or browse through the Current Newspaper Subscriptions Guide.
