Microform Collections

microfilmOur microform collections include materials in microfilm, microfiche, and microcard formats. Most of the collection is in retrievable storage during the Library Addition and Renovation Project.  Ask for assistance at the Reference/Information Desk.

There are three parts of the collections:

  • Government Information
    • U.S., UN, California, and foreign government materials
  • General Collection
    • Newspapers, periodicals, ERIC documents, etc.
  • Technical Reports
    • Materials from NTIS, DTIC, and various U.S. Government agencies

With the exception of the technical report collection, most microform items are cataloged and can be identified by using the library catalog.  Some microform collections are indexed in special print guides, shelved near the microform collections.
