The newspaper collection helps meet the needs of patrons for very current information as well as for retrospective research purposes. Newspapers are a particularly valuable source because of their immediacy both of reporting and of perspective. This collection is heavily dependent on online resources.
The goal of this collection is to provide a small selection of local, regional and national interest newspapers.
Purchases and buying patterns are determined in large part by:
present and potential relevance to the community.
electronic/Internet sources availability.
The High Plains Sentinel is retained permanently for historical and reference use.
