Microforms Reader/Printers

The University of Massachusetts, Amherst, now serves as the microforms repository for the Five Colleges. Hillyer and Josten libraries still have some microforms onsite, but the majority of Smith's microforms, including those formerly housed in Neilson Library, have been transferred to UMass.

  • Request microfoms from UMass using Request Item in the Five College Library Catalog. Delivery turnaround time will be 24 hours (M-F) for loans and article delivery.
  • Microforms may also be used onsite at UMass. Printing from microforms equipment at UMass will require a guest UCard, which is available for purchase.
