Located near the elevators on floor 2 of Hatcher North. 

We provide access to current issues of hundreds of domestic and international print journals and periodical titles — including print newspapers — as well as an extensive collection of microfilms. 

While building access is limited due to COVID-19, you can request items from our microform collections to use onsite by appointment in our dedicated research room.

Pick up and access microforms

Pick up microforms requested for delivery to the Hatcher Library here.

We can also help you find the titles you’re looking for and retrieve them as needed. 

If you know what you need, submit a microform delivery request and we’ll have it ready within 3 days. We can also help you place the request.

Use our digital viewers to read, scan, or print copies of microforms. Staff are on hand to help you with the machines. Microform readers are also available in other select library locations

Browse current journals and newspapers
