Tips on Using Newspapers in Your Research
GEORGIA NEWSPAPER PROJECT
In the early 1950's the University of Georgia Libraries began a special project to convert Georgia newspapers to microfilm. From 1987 through 1991 the National Endowment
for the Humanities funded a large portion of retrospective microfilming, as well as cataloging all Georgia newspaper holdings in the OCLC union catalog.
These microfilm from the Georgia Newspaper Project can be available through interlibrary loan. Contact your local public library or the University of Georgia for details.
Researching at U of GAFrom: "Carole Johnson" firstname.lastname@example.org
Keep in mind that the Journalism
School was only able to microfilm what was was found; some papers
apparently were not archived and/or others just didn't survive.
There is a parking deck on Jackson street (the street past the Arches
if you are heading east). When you come out of the parking deck, walk
across Jackson onto campus (there will be steps). After you reach
the top of the steps, turn left and continue down the sidewalk to the
Main Library. After entering the Library walk toward the back of
the building to the stairs. Go down to the next floor, turn left and
immediately turn left again. You won't be able to miss the many
file cabinets. Everything is self-serve. Don't expect much help.
