Microfilms
The backfile of certain scholarly journals and selected daily newspapers is generally reproduced in microfilm format. Microfilms are found in the microfilm cabinets and are arranged first alphabetically by title and then by date within the title grouping.

Photocopying
Microfilms and microfiche can be photocopied using the special reader/printers on the 5th floor. Photocopy cards must be used in the reader/printers
