The microforms collection contains microfilm, microfiche, and microcards. This collection includes back issues of a variety of journals and newspapers as well as historical documents. Materials in microformat are included in the Libraries’ catalog and are shelved in call number order. You will need a call number to locate any of the microforms.

Microfilm and fiche readers/printers are available adjacent to the microfilm cabinets.  Instructions for emailing, saving to an external drive, or burning to a CD are available.  Prints can be made for $.10 each and with a Copicard only.
