Need help with obscure sources like microforms? So did Claudia.

"I was working on a project for my photography seminar that required using microforms to access old issues of the New York Times. I had never heard of microforms, which are miniaturized images that can be viewed using a special scanner in Olin, let alone tried to use them. The librarian that helped me not only walked me through the entire process, from using the catalog to find what I needed to checking them out and operating the machines, but was so helpful in answering my questions and even took me back to the microform stacks and pointed out all of these cool things that we have stored on these tiny films! Did you know that we have access to physical scans of the New York Times dating back to 1851?!” Claudia Nielsen, ’18, Civil Engineering.
