Getting Microfilm

Microfilm Reader on A-level

Why Microfilm?

Not all newspapers are online, so microfilmed newspapers remain an important part of the research process.  Microfilm preserves the newspaper in its original state so that you can see the placement of articles (front page or buried in the last section), original advertisements, and photographs.

How to Use Microfilm

MSEL has two ScanPro microfilm readers on A-level that can be reserved on our space reservations page.

These microfilm readers are not the nauseating monsters of the past! These are digital microfilm readers that you view on a computer screen and scan images to create your own digital files. We recently added multi-scan and auto-cropping technology to the readers to make it even easier to make digital files. instructions on how to use the ScanPro readers
