An alphabetical and subject guide to primary microfilm collections at Mitchell Memorial Library. Each entry includes the author or publisher, title of the collection, location & call number, and print index or guide (if applicable).
Searching by Keyword
There are two types of searching in the catalog. Advanced Search uses keyword searching to find your search term anywhere in the catalog record, and is useful when you are searching for any material about a topic. Exact Search is most useful when you know what you are looking for; either a specific author, a title, or a subject.
Other tips when searching:
Boolean Logic: use AND, OR, or NOT to group search terms together and expand or narrow your search results.
Subject Headings: use Subject Searches (either Exact or Browse) to find database-specific terms that demonstrate what the work is about. Also, in a catalog record, use the "Subject Terms" to find other works indexed in the same subject.
Truncation: use the asterisk (*) to search using root words. For "histor*" you get "history"; "historians"; "historiography", etc.
