Microtext at Stanford

Microtext includes microfilm, microfiche, microprint or microcard. Most newspapers and many periodicals are on microfilm. In Green Library, go to Media and Microtext and give the person at the desk the call number (for instance N.S. 1113 for Harper's Bazaar).

Some popular titles, such as The New York Times, are self-service in drawers. Just pull the year you need, wind the film on a machine and view the text on the screen. You can print from these or use the machine that allows you to use your flash or thumb drive or mount an AFS folder. Staff at the service desk can help you with the equipment.

The New York Times began publishing in 1851 and Green Library has all issues on microfilm. Stanford also has access to New York Times Historical covering 1851-2001 fulltext (accessible through Databases and Articles). However, there are thousands of other titles available only in microtext – great resources for research.
