Yes, there are machines for reading microfilm, microfiche, and opaque cards on the 2nd floor of the Main Library.

  • There are three combination microfilm/microfiche readers that allow you to print or scan images. Printing costs 7 cents per page (as all black and white printing does). Scanning is free; you can save the file to a flash drive, upload it to a file management site, or e-mail it to yourself.
  • There is one opaque card reader. It is not connected to a scanner or the Internet. Therefore, the only way to obtain an image from an opaque card is to print it, and a separate printer that provides free printing is connected to the reader.

Assistance with these machines is available from the library staff at the Information Desk on the 2nd floor. If no one is there, the staff at the Reference Desk on the 1st floor can also help.
