Microforms

Microform Equipment

The News & Microforms Library staff are ready to assist you with using our collections and the equipment to view, print, and scan microformats (microfilm, microfiche, micro-opaque) and color slides.

Visiting researchers not having a Penn State Access Account and wanting to send scans via email or save to a jump drive will need a Short Term Access Account for Research (STAAR) available from the Commons Services Desk.  Network printing is not available with STAAR accounts.


Find the News & Microforms Library at 21 W Pattee Library (near MacKinnon's Cafe) or call 814-863-0377.
