Citing an item found on microform requires collecting the same identifying information used to cite a print item, such as author, title, publisher, etc.

The citation should also include the information needed to locate the item in microform — collection title and identification numbers, producer of the microform, etc. For more information, see the guide to citing microform sources from the Yale College Writing Center.
