We have two computer scanners for making electronic copies of microfilm/fiche. The copies can be saved to your USB drive,Z drive, or emailed. Since microforms do not circulate, they are to be viewed in the library with the readers located in AV/MRR. Coin and CatCard-operated reader-printers are available for making paper copies from microfilm and microfiche. Instructions for use are on or near the machines.

Staff are available at the AV Desk on the 1st floor to answer questions and provide assistance during library hours.

Specialized subject sets in microform are located in Special Collections on the second floor. For more information on these collections, check the catalog or Ask a Librarian.
