No, there is not a single index to the numerous newspapers in the microfilm collection. The best place to locate specific newspapers on microfilm is to use the library catalog. Within the catalog you can filter for microforms or newspapers. Here is a brief tutorial:

  • Click on the blue "catalog" icon on the rmain UW Libraries webpage.
  • Click the green "Advanced Search" icon the bottom left of the catalog webpage.
  • In the search boxes at the top of the form, enter keyword(s) such as the name of the newspapers.
  • Scroll down and locate the "Material Type" box. Locate and select "Microform."
  • If desired, specific dates may be entered in the "From" and "To" boxes located in the "Within" section.
  • Click on the green "Submit" button located near the top right of the form.
  • Results will be displayed on a new webpage.

A finding guide is available for Laramie area newspapers at the bottom of this library guide. Other information about finding newspapers in the UW Libraries' collection is included on the Newspapers tab of that library guide.
