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. 

Pick up and access microforms

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

We’ll contact you when your request is ready for viewing, with information about making a reservation to use the microform scanning equipment in our scanning lab in the Hatcher Library.

Please direct questions about microform requests to sermicro@umich.edu.

Use microform readers

Use our digital viewers to read, scan, or print copies of microforms. A reservation is required.

Please contact sermicro@umich.edu with questions about making an appointment to use this equipment. Staff are on hand to help you with the machines.
