Many periodicals, newspapers, and other specialized documents are stored on microfilm and microfiche, including older archived materials that are not readily available in digital formats. Microform readers are available for users throughout UK Libraries. 

To view microform materials, please make an appointment. While same-day appointments are possible, 24-hour notice is always appreciated and required for weekends. You must bring a flash drive to save any scans you make. Please contact Laura Hall at with any questions. 

A majority of our microform materials are held by William T. Young Library, though subject-specific libraries also have microform holdings and readers. Not all of our microform sets are listed in the library catalog. To view set guides or explore our microform collections in more depth, please visit the Reference Desk.
