Microform is a printed item that has been reduced to a size too small to be read by the unaided eye. Microfiche and Microfilm are types of Microforms and require the use of a Microform reader.

Most microforms are on the 1st floor of Holland Library. When you enter Terrell Library, go down the hallway where the elevators are located and through the double doors into Holland. You can find this area on our map of the 1st floor of Holland/Terrell.

There are many microform readers, but only one digital scanner. There are instructions next to each machine.

Microform to electronic image copies can be made on our digital scanner. Page images may be saved to flash drives, emailed to yourself, or uploaded to an online storage system such as Google Drive or Dropbox. Instructions for scanning and saving images can be found near the digital scanner.


Microform to paper copies can be made by making digital scans and either forwarding to the library copier/printers near the reference desk on the first floor of Terrell or saving to a flash drive and printing elsewhere. Library copier/printers accept Cougar Cash only and are $00.10 per black & white page. You can also email the image files to yourself and print at  CougPrints Plus, library copier/printers, or elsewhere.
