Project Overview

The New Ulm Public Library expanded its microfilm collection to add 258 rolls of microfilmed local newspapers covering most of the 19th and 20th centuries, all of which were absent in their previous collection. This greatly increases free and full access to both researchers and the general public to these primary records.
