Remote Microfilm Access

Interested in viewing a reel of microfilm from the Research Center collection but can't visit us during our regular business hours? Patrons can now access microfilm remotely from home, and from the Librarium, Hardesty Regional Library, Martin Regional Library, Rudisill Regional Library, and Zarrow Regional Library locations. Special requests for access from other library locations will be considered.

I'd like to see what was in the national news on the day I was born. Where can I find those headlines?

We have access to a New York Times database that allows you to view the newspaper page by page on any given publication date from 1851- 2003. This resource can be found by selecting the Alphabetical List of Resources in the library's Research and Learn tab. Under the N section of the list, you'll see three entries for the New York Times.
