Microfilm Reader-Printers

Services for the microform collections are provided by the Reference Department located on the first floor of the J.D. Williams Library. The library houses more than 2.6 million microforms, including microfiche, microfilm and microprint/microcards and provides equipment to view, print, and digitize all microformats. The newest machines can produce digital images in several formats, including PDF, to be downloaded or e-mailed. The microfilm machines are located on the first floor, adjacent to the Reference Desk. The microforms are located very close by.

The staff at the reference desk are prepared to assist patrons in using this equipment. Printing costs $ .10 per page, while digitizing is free. Some machines are coin-operated (dimes), and others are card-swipe (Ole Miss Express) operated. For patrons needing change, there is a change machine near the Media Desk that converts dollars to dimes. Special arrangements can be made for patrons doing extensive cash printing to use by-pass mechanisms.

The following is a list of the machines we currently have.
