Introduction to the Collection

This LibGuide is a partial list of major collections in microfilm, microfiche, microcard and microprint format in the UMCP Libraries.  The bulk of these collections are held in McKeldin Library and can be found in McKeldin's Periodicals Room.

Collections are listed here by names of issuing countries or organizations, or by title, as appropriate. Most have specialized indexes. Many entries include hypertext links to more complete descriptions of individual collections.

For information on collections not yet included in this list and on more complete collection descriptions not yet accessible through this list, ask at the McKeldin Library Information & Research Services desk or call 301-405-9244.

Remember when searching individual guides with the search box in the upper right corner to select "This Guide" from the drop down list, or you will be searching within the libraries catalog instead of within the guide.
