African American Newspapers in Print and Microformat: Chronological Index

Newspaper Locations in Woodruff

CURRENT ISSUES IN PRINT

Recent issues of newspapers that Woodruff receives in print are in the Newspaper Room of the Candler Library building, adjacent to the Matheson Reading (Periodicals) Room.

From Woodruff Library, enter the Reading Room via the connecting bridge on Level 3 - the Newspaper Room will be immediately to your left.

MICROFILM & MICROFICHE

Newspapers on microfilm or microfiche - and equipment to view, print, and scan them - are located on Level 1. Newspaper titles are housed in cabinets arranged by the MICFILM or MICFICHE call numbers shown in this guide.  You'll then find our holdings of each title arranged by date.

Microforms and microform equipment are self-service, but ask for help at the Level 1 or Level 2 service desks as needed.

OLDER PRINT ISSUES

Print issues of some newspapers are bound and intershelved by call number with other materials in the Woodruff Stacks (book floors). 

Call number and floor (Level) are indicated in this guide for some bound newspapers. Others are listed in discoverE - jot down the newspaper's call number, and consult the Stacks Guides at service desks and elevators for the floor your call number is on.  Note that papers may be located on that floor's OVERSIZE shelves.

The Manuscript, Archives and Rare Books Library (MARBL) on Level 10 also holds scattered print issues of rare or old newspapers. 

Only a portion of MARBL's newspaper holdings have call numbers and are listed in discoverE, so you may need to check with MARBL staff to determine what they have.

 

Using the Chronological Index

Use the CHRONOLOGICAL INDEXES on this page to determine what newspaper titles the Woodruff Library has in PRINT or MICROFORMAT for a particular decade. 

Note the place of publication for each title of interest, then use the GEOGRAPHICAL INDEXES under the U.S. Newspapers or Foreign Newspapers tabs to access detailed publication and Woodruff Library holdings information for each title.
