Please note:
Long-run newspapers are on reels that are identified by the newspaper’s title. Shorter-run newspapers are grouped together. The print and online guides identify the reel on which a particular title may be found by the first title on the reel. (e.g. English Post. On Multiple-title reel: Englishman). Much of the 17th-century material and miscellaneous issues of numerous titles from other years are on 6 reels of microfilm, labeled A-F. The print and online guides indicate on which miscellaneous reel a title is located (e.g. English Gazette. On Miscellaneous Reel A)
