How to use Microfilm

The microfilm newspapers listed in the this guide are held in the Microforms & Newspapers Collection located in Suzzallo Library at UW Seattle.

What are microforms?

Older newspapers are often only available in microform. Microforms contain reproductions of newspapers, magazines, books, and other materials. Microforms are used to preserve content published in newsprint and othe paper formats that may decay over time.  There are 3 formats of microforms: microfilm (on reels), microfiche (sheets), and microcards (opaque cards).

Microforms are located in the Microform & Newspaper Collection on the ground floor of Suzzallo Library.

Can I get help?

Ask for help finding, locating, and duplicating microforms at the Help Desk.  Check the Help Desk Hours before you go.

Can I make copies?

Use microform scanners to make digital (.gif, .jpg, .pdf, etc.) files or reader/printers to print paper copies. Read more about our microform readers, printers, and scanners
