Microforms

Many IU Libraries have microfilm, microfiche, and other microform holdings. The largest collection of these is found in the Government Information, Maps, and Microform Services Department, located on the second floor of the Research Collections in the Herman B Wells Library.

The Education Library holds a large collection of microfiche for the ERIC Document Collection.
