UB Campus Newspapers and Magazines

Currently there are two general-interest newspapers published at UB. They each have online counterparts.

The Spectrum

is the student newspaper, published since 1950. Current issues are available in the Lockwood Newspapers Area. The online version of the Spectrum retains one year of issues. The Spectrum is also available on Microfilm in Lockwood Memorial Library at MicFilm LH1 .B37 S63 and in UB Libraries Digital Collections.

The Reporter

is the UB community newspaper, published since 1970. The print version was discontinued in 2009. The online version of the Reporter is published weekly and allows a search of past issues back to 1993. Print copies are archived in Special Collections in the University Archives Periodical Collection. The Reporter is also available on Microfilm in Lockwood Memorial Library at MicFilm LH1 .B37 R47
