The Microform Collection at Butler Library

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

Approximately one million items including newspapers, academic journals, popular magazines, doctoral dissertations, monographs and monographic series are available. Other libraries on campus have collections of microforms related to the subject speciality of the library.

Search CLIO to determine the call number of the microform and where it is located. Some materials acquired prior to 1981 can be found only through the Card Catalog in Rm. 310.

In many cases, you must use an index to determine specific reel or holdings information.  Indexes are shelved in PMRR.

PMRR Staff assistance is available in 401 Butler Library at all times to answer questions related to access and retrieval of particular reels. Librarians at Butler Reference (Rm. 301) can help with further questions related to the card catalog, indexes or databases related to microforms.

Microform titles not available at Columbia University can be requested through Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Below is a list of titles on film available for self-service use.

Check CLIO for holdings information.
