Many more  of the Historic Beloit Newspaper Microfilms are cataloged and available now for patrons to use on the microfilm machines at the Beloit Public Library.
These were paid for by FNDN Beloit Public Library Foundation.
The patrons are going to love having these additional microfilms.
I put the reels into the bottom right hand side of the microfilm case.
Once the  rest of the microfilms get cataloged,
I will re-arrange the whole case with the earliest newspapers first, (by title).

These have been added to the microfilms we have had:
Beloit Free Press (1848 – 1903) with a new one 1900 – 1903.

Beloit Daily News BDN (1897 –  March 2015)

    1. Hi Shirley,
      Yes the microfilms are categorized. Each reel is in an archival box labeled with the Newspaper (etc.) title and the range of years that it covers. The boxes are arranged chronologically under the title, (except the recently purchased old newspaper microfilm reels are temporarily in the bottom drawer.) I am working on an index for the complete microfilm holdings. Once all of the pending microfilms are cataloged, I will rearrange the boxes in the Library’s microfilm cabinet so that they are chronological by title. There are index books for the BDN Beloit Daily News for 1848 -1915, and the year 1968. The Beloit Public Library also has on-line databases that covers the BDN Beloit Daily News from 1996 to yesterday.
