Most of the local newspapers in Jämtland County are available on microfilm up until 2013. The main library has a microfilm scanner that you can use to access the material.
In our microfilm room, you’ll find the Östersunds-Posten (1877 - 2013), Länstidningen (1924 – 2013) and Strömsunds tidning (1906 - 1917) on microfilm.
In the library’s storage, you can find Tidningen Härjedalen (1944 - 2012) and Jämtlands Tidning (1845 – 1957, 1960) on microfilm. These files can be brought out upon request. Enquire at the information desk.
You can also access microfilmed daily newspapers from the rest of Sweden through an interlibrary loan. We will charge an interlibrary fee when you order these films.
It is possible to read microfiche on the same machine.
You reserve the microfilm scanner in the same way as you would the other computers. Reserve the microfilm scanner via the following link: Netloan
You can also reserve the scanner by contacting the personnel at the information counter.
You may reserve up to four hours per day. The microfilm room is locked, so you need to ask the personnel at the information counter to unlock it.
The instructions are available in the room, and we would be pleased to help you get used to using the equipment.
The films are read on a microfilm scanner, Scan Pro 2000, which is connected to a computer.
Paper copies can be printing on a printed. Print outs are paid for at the information counter. The cost is 2k per A4 sheet.
Pages can also be saved on your own USB drive.
The computer, however, is not connected to a network. That’s why you cannot send saved files to an e-mail address.
