PRESERVATION POLICY

For preservation, most of the newspaper files in the library are filmed or will be filmed in the future. After filming of the original, files may or may not be retained. In the case of older files on rag paper, for example, files are retained if space permits; but modern titles on newsprint, which deteriorates rapidly, are rarely retained. Newspaper and periodical titles which the library has microfilmed and makes available in positive copies are listed in Publications in Print and Titles Available on Microfilm issued annually by the library. A particularly important group of Judaica and Hebraica is included.
