Preservation Microfilms

Please make sure that the film you are asking about says either University of Michigan Preservation Office or University of Michigan Photoduplication, NOT University Microfilms International. University Microfilms International is not associated with the University of Michigan (other than sharing a city) and we cannot duplicate films that we did not produce, including those from UMI.

Orders normally take 6-8 weeks to process.
Per film excluding postage- $62.00
Orders should be sent to Preservation at the University of Michigan, but will be filled, sent out and invoiced from Backstage Library Works

The mailing address for orders is-

Shannon Zachary
Department of Preservation and Conservation
University of Michigan Library

Individuals and foreign patrons must prepay before Backstage Library Works will fill the order; regular institutionsthey will invoice. Backstage Library Works accepts both checks and credit cards. Email us for details. Rush orders are possible (about a week turn around) but involve added fees which are dependant upon the current work situation.
