Bound Issues – Print journals that have been bound together in book form are shelved alphabetically on the Lower Level of Squires Library near Room 109. Some bound periodicals are located in off-site storage. Request the volumes in off-site storage at the Reference Desk. Allow 24 hours for retrieval of these volumes.
Microform or Microfiche – Microfilm contains copies of pages and reels of film. Microfiche contains copies of pages on individual filmcards. Both forms are filed alphabetically in cabinets in the back corner of the Periodical/Microforms area. You may make copies on the microfilm and microfiche readers ($.10 per page).
