How to order microfilm copies

We can arrange 35 mm microfilm copies of manuscripts and some pictorial or rare printed material from the Mitchell Library and Dixson Library collections.

Some material is too fragile to microfilm. There are also restrictions on the amount of material that can be microfilmed.

A commercial imaging firm carries out the microfilming.

Ask a Librarian to find out about ordering microfilm copies.

Prices for microfilm copies

Prices for microfilm copies vary depending on the complexity of the work involved.

For example, some collection material has been previously microfilmed, but some will need to be filmed for the first time.

Library staff can organise a quote for prices per reel when you ask about ordering.
