Microforms are photographic reproductions, typically of print material, which have been reduced in scale from that which is readable by the unaided eye and transferred to either transparent or opaque materials.

All microforms require special equipment to view, print, or scan them.
Microform scanners are available in Regenstein's 3rd Floor Reading Room, near the Microforms Collection.
