How to Access Microfilm

To search our microform collection, use the library catalog.  Limit the search to microfilms by changing the "ALL Locations" drop box to "Microforms."

Once you have located the microfilm in the catalog use these options to access them:

  • Request the Item: Items can be pulled from storage through the Pick It Up service, with delivery available to locations with microform readers, including the PCL. Generally, paged items will be “Library Use Only” and will be due 15 minutes before the service desk closes. Users can ask for items to be put back on hold so they can use them again before they are returned to CDL.
  • Get a digital scan: Scans with electronic delivery of articles or chapters may be requested through the Get a Scan service for items where a specific citation is known.
  • Walk-in: Walk-in access on site at Collection Deposit Library (CDL), Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm.
