The Denver Public Library’s main branch has many resources to find information for research. Among these resources are:

 

1) Microfilm
2) Collaborative Digitalization Project(which you can acess through the History Colorado website)
3) Newspaper Archive(costs money www.newspaperarchive.com $30/month)
4) Genealogy Bank(free in some libraries, paid elsewhere www.genealogybank.com $20/month)

 

At the library, we met with collections specialist James Jefferey who told us more about these resources. He told us how to access these resources at the library. Microfilm is available on the 4th and 5th floors. The other resources are available through the internet.

 

One trick if you are researching a particular date is to look in the paper the day AFTER the event, not the day OF the event. For example, if you wanted to know what happened the day you were born, you would want to look at the paper the day after you were born.

 

So the next time you have a research paper due, don’t always refer to the internet. These resources can bring your grade from a C to an A.
