How to Find Microforms
In the online catalog search keywords or browse titles, while limiting the material to "microforms".
Located on the first floor of Bostock Library, the Microforms Department houses and services back files of newspapers and most of the library's microform materials.
A list of Microfilm Titles housed in Bostock Library and their locations can be found online or at the Bostock Help Desk. There are two main stacks areas: the cabinets on the first floor and the cabinets on the lower level of Bostock Library.
Several reader/printers are available for making paper copies from microfiche or microfilm. There is also one scanner which, in addition to making paper copies, had the capability of burning files to a CD or saving them on a flash/thumb drive.
