Print Sources

Printed copies of some daily newspapers (e.g. The Guardian, The Times) are available at some library sites, although they are not usually kept for more than a few weeks/months.

The Library & Learning Commons also has copies of El Pais, Le Monde and Frankfurtur Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung. The Hartley Library and Winchester School of Art Library do not have any printed newspapers. Please see WebCat for full details of holdings.

Microfilm Sources

Most microfilms at Hartley are kept on the far right of Level 1. There are facilities in this area to read and print from both microfilm and microfiche. If you require assistance during office hours, please ask at the Level 2 Desk.

We hold copies of the Times, Financial Times and Times Literary Supplement from 2011 onwards, and Sunday Times from 2008 onwards. For Special Collections newspaper resources on microfilm see Cope Collection Local Newspapers and Parkes Library Microforms.
