How do I find newspapers?: 1. Start

Locating newspapers in the NUSL collection


This is a basic guide that helps you locate a specific newspaper title using LINC, the default library catalogue search in NUS Libraries. This consists of the following steps:

(i) Checking the physical location of newspaper (Where is the newspaper physically located?)

(ii) Checking the status of the newspaper (Can I find older issues of newspapers?)

(iii) Checkout the newspaper if newspaper is available for loan (How do I check-out the newspaper?)

i(v) Placing a hold on item if item is already borrowed or in closed stacks (How do I place a hold or request if the newspaper is in microform?)


Let's say you are looking for a specific newspaper, where you either know the  

(i) Title of the newspaper(e.g. Straits Times)

(ii) Call number (e.g AN Mal.St.T)

and enter them into LINC. If you are using FindMore@NUSL, use the newspaper title only.
