Although it may come as a surprise to most of our users, the Library still holds more than 700,000 microforms. The microforms collection includes archives of many journals and special sets, such as Evans Early American Imprints, Library of American Civilization, The New York Times (1857-2002), and Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) documents.
Library researchers in need of these materials will be glad to learn that the Library has given the microforms reader (located near the exhibition area on the first floor) a tune-up to make it easier to use. We have also installed Adobe software so that scanned images can be converted to PDF and added step-by-step instructions to help first-time users.
Whether you are a regular microforms researcher (Divinity faculty and students dominate microforms use) or Luddite hobbyist, we invite you to try out the improved and enhanced microforms reader.
