Use Microfilm

Microfilm is a space-saving media format in which documents are photographed and reduced onto either rolls of film or small, translucent cards.

The Livingston Lord Library has two types of microfilm called microforms: microfilm refers to rolls of film and microfiche refers to 4"x6" cards.

These items can be found by refining a search by selecting both Microfilm and Microfiche under Collection to the left of the search results. Microform readers can be found on the second floor. Please ask for assistance when operating the the machinery.
