The permanent newspaper archive of the library is kept on microfilm as this is still the safest medium for long term storage and reproduces an integral copy of the original. The Library aims to offer its users most major European newspapers from 1945 onwards for which a microfilm edition exists and for which indexes are available. Where the absence of indexes would mean that there would be no coverage for a member state of the European Union one newspaper for that country is nevertheless included in the archive. As Italian newspapers are accessible elsewhere in Florence, have been excluded. In addition, one major American newspaper (New York Times) was purchased as well as several runs of newspapers pre-dating 1945. More information is available from our page on Newspaper Collections .
