How to find older articles

Older journal articles (up to the 1980s) are not always searchable electronically. To help you find these articles, you can use printed bibliographies in various subjects that list the relevant articles. They are available in the library’s Reference Collection.

The Reference Collection

Older daily newspaper articles (up to the 1990s) are usually available on microfilm but are usually not indexed by subject. If you do not have the exact date, you have to go through the relevant period of the newspaper on microfilm.
