HOW TO REQUEST A LOAN
The Tennessee State Library and Archives will loan microfilmed Tennessee newspapers to libraries in Tennessee. TSLA does not loan newspaper microfilm to libraries outside of Tennessee. The index Newspapers on Microfilm at the Tennessee State Library and Archives is available on our web site.
TSLA will loan newspaper microfilm to a library in Tennessee if we hold the negative of the microfilm reel. The listed date ranges for the newspapers below are not available for loan to libraries inside or outside of Tennessee.
The chart below lists major collections of TSLA and indicates the lending policy for each. Please note that the lending policy may differ for libraries outside Tennessee. You can e-mail TSLA to ask whether a specific title found in the TSLA Online Catalog can be loaned. TSLA will respond to e-mail requests promptly; response time may vary, depending on the amount of research required to answer your question and the unique nature of your request. If you need immediate assistance you may call the reference desk at (615) 741-2764 or visit us in person.
