Microform Readers - 2nd floor Murray Library

Microform readers are available in the Maps & Micro area on the 2nd floor of Murray Library.

If assistance is required ask at the Research Help Desk on 1st floor.

On the second floor we have:

  • 3 microfilm readers

  • 1 opaque (microprint/card) reader

Note: As of March 2020, in-person library services are unavailable. To request a scan of an item in microfilm, please follow the instructions on our Scan and Send service page. Requests for micro scanning must be within Canadian copyright parameters. Due to staffing limitations and the time required to scan microfilm, please keep requests to a reasonable size.
