African American Studies: Microfilm

Information resources for UCI students, faculty, and staff interested in African American Studies.

Microform / Microfilms at UCI

To search the microform collections at UCI go into ANTPAC and click on "Advanced Keyword". Try some general search terms in the "Any Field" box. (e.g., Medieval and England). Then scroll down and in the "Microform" box, select "All Microforms". (Do NOT select "Any"). Hint: Always try to find the Guide to the collection, as the Guide is extremely important for locating specific documents.

All microforms (including government documents and newspapers) are located on the second floor in the Grand Reading Room of the Ayala Science Library.
