A Guide to the Negro Newspapers on Microfilm: A Selected List.
In 1946, the Committee on Negro Studies of the American Council of Learned Societies began the project of microfilming the Negro newspapers published in the United States in the last century. The Library of Congress, through its Photoduplication Service, performed the microfilming service and in 1953 issued a guide entitled Negro Newspapers on Microfilm: A Selected List. The present document is intended to fill the gaps and omissions in that Library of Congress guide. The results of a title-by-title search of the 180 reels of microfilm have been compiled into three lists. List I is arranged alphabetically by the title of each newspaper on the film. At the beginning of certain entries, symbols are used to indicate that the title cannot be found in Brown's Check List, Ayer's Newspaper Directory, Gregory's, and Union List of Serials. If dates of publication can be verified in one of these sources, they are included in the title line of the entry. The reel and title number on the last line of each entry expresses the exact location on the microfilm. List II is arranged by state and city of publication. List III is arranged by reel and title order indicating the order in which the titles appear on each reel of the set. (Author/JLB)
