Microfilmed and older printed newspapers (-2013)

The library has a large collection of microfilmed newspapers dating back to 2013. More recent newspapers are digitised and made available via "Svenska dagstidningar". The easiest way to find out which newspapers the library has on microfilm is to check the register "Tidningsfilm : mikrofilmade svenska dagstidningar".
