Fogler Library microforms include a variety of material formats: microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards and opaque cards. The information located on these resources is often the only information available on certain research topics. This might include historical information from a small Maine town newspaper from the nineteenth century, or, perhaps, a research report from the Department of Energy on power generation. URSUS, our online catalog lists the material in the collection. You will see a statement "microform" in URSUS if the format is of this nature. Microforms are located in the microfilm room as well as stored in staff accessible locations. Please ask a staff member for assistance if unsure. Equipment for viewing the information on these formats is available. You can either print a copy or save the information to a pdf for further research.
