Microforms at Pitts
Though we are in the digital age, much library material is in the form of microfilm and microfiche. This includes a lot newspapers, journals, and conference minutes. Fortunately, access to this material, including printing and scanning, is made easy at Pitts. This guide will help you locate, access, scan, and print microforms. As always, though, if you need help, feel free to contact a reference librarian.
About the ScanPro 3000
In April, 2015, the Pitts Theology Library purchased a new e-Image Date ScanPro 3000, a high-powered, small footprint microforms scanner. This machine allows patrons to view microfilm and microform, focus, crop, and edit images, and output images in a variety of formats. The machine is connected to a Windows desktop computer, which runs software to control the scanner. The ScanPro 3000 is located on the second (main) floor of the library, adjacent to the Reference collection.
