Check out Our Collections on Microform!

The Dewey Library has several microform collections that are available for viewing. Don’t know how to use the microfilm/fiche readers? Stop by the reference desk and a reference librarian can help you. It’s even possible to save to .PDF on your flash drive!

Minerva, the library’s online catalog, is the most effective way to search for microforms at the Dewey Library. It is possible to limit your search by format to microforms and by library in the Advanced Search option. It is easiest to find microform periodicals, newspapers, dissertations, serials, and monographs by searching by title.

Using our microfilm readers, you can review the content of these resources and either print them out or save them in PDF format to your flash drive.
