The Microforms are

  • Housed in purple cabinets on the 2nd Floor
  • Printed or graphic material reproduced, photographically, in miniaturized form
  • Microfilm on 35mm film reels
  • Microfiche (a photographic format that stores 98 pages of an original on a 4"x6" sheet of film)

The Harvey Library's microform collection includes

  • The New York Times from 1851
  • The Daily Press from 1888
  • The ERIC collection (a 400,000+ collection of educational reports)
  • Thousands of peer-reviewed journals and magazines from the 1980's and 1990's
  • Many Government Documents

Materials cannot be removed from the library. Reader/printers in the department allow patrons to read and print from microforms, and scanners will allow microforms to be printed, saved, or emailed. African American-related microforms are kept in the Peabody Collection on the 3rd floor.
