About the Microform Research Collections
If you were asked to list the types of material accessible through our remote document supply services, you might mention the unrivalled holdings of science and technology serials or the hundreds of thousands of modern English language non-fiction books. You might also know about the uniquely comprehensive collections of conference papers and reports.
But did you know that you could borrow medieval manuscripts, annotated proofs of the novels of Charles Dickens, British Home Office papers and records since 1782 or archives of the Soviet Communist Party and State? What about the 50 miles of microfilm of American fiction from 1774-1900 and American 18th and 19th century periodicals?
This cornucopia of knowledge and culture is held in our Microform Research Collections, all of which are available for loan through our document delivery services. Records for this material are not included in the files available in Explore the British Library.
Material held in the Microform Research Collections is available for loan only.
