CIC 16mm Film Collection: Home

The website devoted to the discovery of 16mm films owned by the CIC and held at the University of Iowa Main Library.

General Information

The CIC  has made available 16mm films to members.  These films are located at the University of Iowa Main Library. 85 films are available to users at CIC institutions for use in classrooms, independent studies, and research.  Once a title is found, University of Iowa users can ask at the Main Library Service Desk for the 16mm film to be retrieved from storage.  For users in a CIC library, your local interlibrary loan department should be contacted as the films will be lent out via the interlibrary loan service.

Care and Handling

Please return films in the same way they are shipped to you; rewound with the ends fastened with paper, film tape, or flatback tape.  Please do not use plastic tape on film prints.
