Recently at the Harriet Irving Library, Microforms has begun its move into a newly developed space in the basement! While there is some material left on the third floor, much of the collection and equipment has moved downstairs.
While we are in the midst of this transition, we’d like to highlight that if you have any questions the Microforms staff are here to help you during regular office hours. There is a service desk in the basement space, and the main Microforms office can be found in their new location on the third floor in Room 309.

While the sun was shining this summer, our web folks were sequestered in a tiny windowless room filled with computers and delved into code to build a new website to improve access, navigation and functionality. It even boasts responsive design, making it easy to use on a tablet or phone because we know you are busy and on the move.
Although we’re still hard at work on the website, we want to give you a sneak peek of what we’ve done and get your thoughts on it. Check it out!
