Books, articles, newspapers, and other library materials are often preserved in a microtext format (e.g., microfilm). This format saves space and strenghtens the storage capability of the item but requires special equipment to read.
The Microtext area is part of the Makerspace on the second floor of Walker Library. The area offers 5 microfilm scanners for viewing, scanning, and printing the various formats (microfilm, microfiche, etc.).
