The University of Arizona maintains copies of the Arizona Republic newspaper on microfilm. Its collection includes all issues of the Arizona Republic published between 1930 and 2010. Issues published after 2010 are available in other formats, such as digital microfilm, print and online databases.
The University of Arizona houses its microfilm collection of the Arizona Republic on the first floor of the Main Library, located at 1510 East University Boulevard in Tucson. Patrons are encouraged to ask at the circulation desk for help with microfilm, either in person or on the phone located in the first-floor reading room. The university extends privileges according to the type of borrower. Members of the general public who are not affiliated with the University of Arizona must obtain a UA library card and membership within the Friends of the University Libraries or the Greater Western Library Alliance. Local businesses may apply for a business library card.
