Welcome to the new and improved Microform Guide. This Guide has been designed to aid in finding information about the library's microform holdings by subject or by title using the "A to Z" listing.

The entries in the subject portion include:

  • Annotations describing the resource,
  • Links to the WebCatalog for more information,
  • Information on digital access, and
  • Location of the microfilm/fiche in the Micrographics Room.

When using the microfilm/fiche, there are two reader/scanners available in the Micrographics Room. Instructions for using the reader/scanners are located next to each reader/scanner.

Digital Alternative Sources

A significant portion of the microfilm/fiche collection is now available in digital format. Beyond the traditional scope of Lexis and Westlaw, the following subscription resources provide a combination of index, abstract, and full-text access to many valuable resources.

The annotations in this guide provide information related to the availability of particular titles.
