A Guide to Selected Microform Series and Their Indexes.
In increasing numbers microform publishers are engaged in reproducing valuable and extensive collections of books, documents and manuscripts that would otherwise be impossible for most libraries to acquire due to their scarcity and cost. The availability of these collections and the difficulties encountered when using them prompted the development of this guide. The microform collections or series described in this guide reflect the holdings of Milner Library, Illinois State University. However, because these collections are found in many other libraries, this guide can serve a larger audience than those using Milner Library. The series are grouped under the following headings: general, busness, education, history, library science, literature, music, psychology, religion, social sciences, technology, and theatre. Not included in this guide are separate, individual monographs, newspapers, or periodicals in microform. At the conclusion of the sections describing the microform series or collections is a bibliography with imprint information which includes an alphabetical listing of the series mentioned in the body of the text. The second list provides, in alphabetical order, an index to all the series or collections covered. (Author/SJ)
