Most of the newspaper backfiles in Mugar Memorial Library are kept in the "Newspapers" cabinets (Mugar Micro Mfilm NEWSPAPERS), arranged alphabetically by title, in the Microforms Room. Other newspaper backfiles (Mugar Micro Mfilm) are arranged alphabetically in the left-hand cabinets that face the front of the Microforms Room. Some of Mugar's newspaper backfiles (Le Monde, for example) have call numbers assigned to them, and have been interfiled with the rest of the microfilm collection in the Microforms Room.
