Microforms are the filmed version of a printed work. Microforms are in the form of microfilm, which is a reel or roll, and microfiche, which is a sheet or card format. Most frequently, materials such as newspapers or periodicals are converted to a microform for the purpose of storage and/or preservation.
All Spiva Library microforms are located on the 4th floor across from the Government Documents & Audio Visuals help desk. Newspapers & periodicals are in alphabetical order by their titles. ERIC documents are in numerical order by their ED number.
A staff member at the Government Documents & Audio Visuals help desk can assist you in locating the material and in demonstrating how to use a reader or reader/printer to view or make photocopies of microforms. There are reader/printers for both microfilm and microfiche.
