The library holds a selection of daily newspapers on Level 3 of the Main Library. On display is The Times, The Scotsman, The Independent, The Herald, Guardian and Financial Times. They are held for three months in paper form and are located on the shelves to the left of the Newspaper table. They can be used at any time and by anyone in the library.
If you are looking for further archives of the newspapers or just wish to view them online all holdings have been clearly listed on our Online Newspapers page. Please note that you will need a valid GUID account to view some of these resources.
We also hold archives of other Newspapers such as the Le Monde, The Times/Sunday Times , Glasgow Herald in CD-Rom. These items can only be viewed on a networked CD-Rom machine which has recently been re-located to inside the Short Loan area on Level 2 of the Main Library. Please speak to the staff on The Welcome Desk on Level 2 if your wish to view any of these items.
Microfilm copies of newspapers can also be found in the Microfilm Collection on Level 4 of Main Library. Readers are located in the room with the microfilm and if any help is needed using the machines the staff in Book processing Unit are happy to help. They are located on level 3 of the Main Library opposite the Photo Copy Room.
