The library owns a microfilm viewer attached to a computer system that allows patrons to view documents available on Microfilm, Microfiche, and Microcard. Additionally, the ViewScan program enables users to adjust the quality of the image they are viewing, as well as, print or save the images as computer files for later viewing.
The Microfilm Viewer is located in the Search Center across from the GIS Lab.
