To search our microform collection, use the library catalog. Limit the search to microforms by changing the "ALL Locations" drop box to "Microforms."
All the microforms previously housed on the first floor of PCL have been relocated to the Collections Deposit Library (CDL), located on the southwest corner of MLK and Red River.
Newspaper indexes will be relocated to CDL, while indexes and guides to individual microfilm/fiche sets will remain in PCL.
There are now three ways to access the microforms:
- Items can be paged 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.
- 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 access on site at CDL, Monday-Friday, 8am to 5pm.
A full array of microform viewing, printing, and scanning equipment will be available at the:
- Collections Deposit Library (CDL)
- PCL (room 2.200, behind the Computer Help Desk)
- Life Science Library
The Fine Arts Library and the Architecture & Planning Library have readers that can print content.
This equipment will be available for users viewing UT Libraries microforms or borrowing materials from other libraries through Interlibrary Services.
If you need microforms for the long-term or your research is time-sensitive, Ask a Librarian via email.
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.
Please Ask a Librarian or visit the PCL Research Help & Check Out Desk if you have any questions.
