Newspapers Received in Print & Microform

The following newspapers are received in print and are available on the 3rd floor of Lockwood in the Current Periodicals area. Each title is linked to the corresponding catalog record.

At present, we continue to receive only The New York Times and the Muslim Journal on microform.

To discover whether UB has microform holdings of any newspaper or journal, simply search in the Libraries Catalog for the title of the publication that interests you and check in the item record under 'Get It' for availability and call numbers.

Lockwood offers a digital microform reader for public use in the reference area on the 2nd floor. Patrons can scan microform images to PDF and email or save them to flash media.

If you would like training in how to use this reader or have any questions about microform research, please contact Michael Kicey at

Newspapers on Microform

To discover whether UB has microform holdings for any newspaper, search for the newspaper's title in the Libraries' Catalog.

Many local papers on microfilm are available at the Research Library of the Buffalo History Museum. See their complete list of titles at Newspapers on Microfilm.

For a list of all known New York State Newspapers available on microfilm, see the New York State Library's guide to New York State Newspapers on Microfilm and Paper.

Additional items may be available from the Center for Research Libraries; check their catalog.

If a newspaper has been converted to microfilm but is not available in UB's collections, it may be available through Delivery+. Speak to our Delivery Services staff to learn more.
