Using Micromaterials in the University Libraries

This is a guide for locating, viewing, and scanning various micromaterials located in the University Libraries.


All of the University Libraries' Micromaterials are located on second floor. With the exception of the larger microprints/cards, which are housed in boxes and located on small tables nearby, all of our micromaterials are housed in large metal cabinets. The drawer of each cabinet has a label listing its contents.

We have staff available several hours a day to help you retrieve materials from the collection and use our viewing equipment. The map to the right indicates the location of the microform collection.  Be sure to have the item call number and reel number or date (when applicable) before you start searching.
