Microform Guides

  • Media Services Microform Collection Guide
    This annotated index of approximately 250 microform guides stored in The University of Iowa Main Library Media Services Department provides a summary of those holdings that have guides. This numerical index has been arranged as a shelf list, giving the order in which the guides are to be found on the shelf according to accession number. This is only a small portion of microforms available on campus; many microform materials do not have guide books.
  • Microform Sets for Historical Research
    The great untapped source of primary historical materials for history researchers in this area is the vast collection of microform sets held in the UI Libraries and the UI Law Library. This document lists sizable microform sets of potential interest to history researchers. It lists only microform sets that are "sizable," that is, those consisting of more than 6 reels of microfilm, or more than 40 microfiche, or more than 200 microprints or microcards.

Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, By Popular Demand: "Votes for Women" Suffrage Pictures, 1850-1920 [REPRODUCTION NUMBER:  LC-USA7-27850 DLC]

The Library of Congress has extensive and varied resources related to the campaign for woman suffrage in the United States. This selection of 38 pictures includes portraits of many individuals who have been frequently requested from the holdings of the Prints and Photographs Division and the Manuscript Division. Also featured are photographs of suffrage parades, picketing suffragists, and an anti-suffrage display, as well as cartoons commenting on the movement--all evoking the visible and visual way in which the debate over women's suffrage was carried out. This online illustrated reference aid is part of the "By Popular Demand" series. It is a pictorial partner for the text documents in "'Votes for Women:' Selections from the National American Woman Suffrage Collection, 1848-1920."
