How do I find materials on microfilm?

Certain serial publications, particularly back issues of old newspapers and periodicals, can be found on microfilm. Microfilm and microfiche are located off-site, in building 2M. If the library catalog indicates that the item you want is available on microfilm, use the following form to request the item to be retrieved from storage. Printing of microfilm materials is free but materials can only be printed one page at a time.

Students, faculty, and staff of the College of Staten Island can request microfilm and microfiche from the library’s collection. Items requested before 3:30pm should be available the following business day at noon. The service is not available on weekends and holidays. You will receive an email when the item is available for pickup. Items will be held at the Circulation/Reserve desk for 72 hours after notification.
