The Microforms are located on the B2 floor of the Main Library. The Library's microform holdings include an extensive collection of periodical and newspaper back files on microfilm and microfiche. The complete collection of ERIC microfiche is available to patrons by asking the reference desk staff at the 3rd floor reference desk.

Back files of periodicals on microfilm are arranged alphabetically by title in the open stacks on the B2 floor. Newspapers on microfilm are also arranged alphabetically by title adjacent to the periodicals. The microfiche collections are housed in the self-serve cabinets on the same floor.


The B2 floor has a digital Reader/Printer which exports the microform images to either a thumb drive or email address.


Also located on the B2 floor are a scanner and a photocopy machine. Dispensers for the purchase of copy cards is located on the 4th Floor.
