Welcome to the Education Resources in Microform Guide

Welcome to Auburn University Libraries' research guide for Education Resources in Microforms!

This guide provides assistance to those researching and studying in all fields of Education and Kinesiology.  The purpose is to inform users about information resources available in microforms at the R. B. Draughon Library.

Most of the microforms are located on the first floor in the Media & Digital Resource Lab (MDRL).

Use the tabs above to navigate the guide. If you have comments or suggestions please leave them below or email me at

What are Microforms?

What are microforms?

Microforms are formats of information resources that are designed to preserve information on a more durable material than paper and can save storage space by being produced as "micro"-sized images.  Microforms require the use of special reading devices in order to see the text at normal size.  These readers are not difficult to use, but you should ask for assistance the first time you use them so you can learn how to do it.

Most microforms come in one of two formats: Microfilm and Microfiche.  A few resources are available in the Microcard format too.
