Microfilm Instructions: Home

This guide will teach you how to load, scan, save, and print using the library's microfilm machine. Current as of 06/11/2014 JEB.


Many of the library's print sources can be found on microfilm. Our microfilm collection contains newspapers, magazines, and academic journals as well as educational and government documents. These images are scans of the original that have been reduced and transferred to transparent film reels or flat microfiche sheets. This allows for the researcher to easily scan, save, or print a document that might not otherwise be checked out of the library. This guide will teach you how to both load and use the library's microfilm machines to assist you in your research.

If you have any questions about obtaining microfilm or using the machines, please contact the Research Center and a student will assist you.
