There is a significant collection of primary source material reproduced on microfilm or microfiche. This guide is a selected list of these microform research collections and of newspapers. Most are in off-site storage, and must be requested via Sooner Xpress. This guide does not include journal and magazine titles. Search the Local Catalog for more complete holdings of the University of Oklahoma Libraries, including its special collections.

Once you receive the microforms you requested through Sooner Xpress, there are machines on the fourth floor (see picture below and #5 on map - PDF)  that will allow you to read, scan, or print from the microform. See this link for more information.
