Celebrating the Life


Announcement: Between Friday, August 22 and the first week in September, the PCL Microforms will be moved to the Collections Deposit Library and may be unavailable during that time. Use the Pick It Up button or Ask A Librarian if the materials you need are unavailable.

PCL receives many items on microform.  Microforms are materials that have been reproduced photographically and stored either on a reel (microfilm) or on a flat sheet (microfiche).

Our microfilm and microfiche collection is housed on the ground floor of PCL in the labeled cabinets.

Microform readers are located near the microform cabinets.  Our microform readers can create photocopies or digital scans.

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

Below are several of our most popular microform sets:

You can also view a list of newspapers we hold on microform.  The list is organized by country/state and provides date ranges for our holdings.
