Their preferred method of receiving queries is via email, at either of the above addresses. There is a large collection of newspapers on mf at Library and Archives Canada. It published a union list in book form under the title Union list of Canadian newspapers held by Canadian libraries = Liste collective des journaux canadiens disponibles dans les bibliothèques canadiennes (National Library of Canada, 1977, with a supplementary volume in 1983).
