This is a listing of foreign newspaper volumes held in storage for the Newspaper & Current Periodical Room based on an inventory conducted Fall, 1998. Arranged by country, then city, it lists the bound volume control number, total volume count, and summary holdings for each title (titles may vary from what is listed). The inventory does not provide detailed holdings; dates listed may have unspecified missing issues. Also, "misc" refers to miscellaneous issues that have been collected separately for each country; these portfolios may include single issues that supplement the holdings of cities listed. Increasingly specific holdings information is provided in the title record in the library catalog (catalog.loc.gov); where available, the online holdings substitute holdings indicated in the below list. Detailed holdings of portfolios and bound volumes are available by contacting Reading Room staff. Please note that when microfilm is available for issues also held in bound format, the microfilm will be served to researchers.
Please contact the reading room staff via Ask a Librarian before requesting bound newspapers. Also, to better notify you regarding the availability of a bound newspaper, always provide a phone number where you can be reached so that we can confirm access.
