Microfilm and Microfiche: About These Resources

identifies the microfilm and microfiche collections of UCF, plus some related digital and print collections

Why Are Non-Microform Resources Included?

Although the primary purpose of this guide is to identify the materials available on microfilm or microfiche in the UCF Libraries, some print and online resources are included because they provide primary documents and other content related to that found in the microform materials.

Compilation of these lists

The original examination of the UCF Library microform collection was done by Cheryl Mahan & Carole Hinshaw in 1991, resulting in a printed list of principal holdings. Rich Gause re-examined the collection in 1998-1999, greatly expanded the list, added lengthier descriptions, and made the list available online. In 2009 Rich Gause again reviewed the list and migrated it to LibGuides.

What Is the Difference Between the Left and Right Columns on the Time Period Pages?

Many resources span more than one time period. The list of resources for 1450-1699 are simply split between the left and right columns, with the earlier materials in the left column. On the pages for subsequent time periods, the new material is listed at the top of the right column, with material which was already listed on the pages for earlier time periods in the left column and continued as indicated below the new material in the right column.

To browse through the entire list, read both columns on the page for 1450-1699 and then read just the new material at the top of the right column on the pages for subsequent time periods.

Permission to host digitized finding aids

In response to our query regarding a stable URL for the digitized finding aids for the ProQuest/UPA microform sets we received an email from the ProQuest Microfilm Sales Manager at 10:50 AM on October 5, 2018 stating "My suggestion is to download the guides you need and host them."
