About the Collections

The JMU Library owns a variety of microform collections. We have a collection of periodicals, journals, and newspapers that are contained in microform formats. All materials are in the Periodical Locator, generally located in our off-site storage facility and are available via the off-site request form.

General Info

We provide two microform readers in Carrier Library connected to computers for viewing and scanning microforms. All machines are networked to our public printers click here for more information. If you will be saving scanned versions of your documents, it is recommended that you bring a USB flash drive to store your work.

For assistance finding or using these materials, please ask at the Ask the Library Desk in Carrier or Rose Library, or contact us via chat, email or phone.
