Microforms are scaled-down reproductions of documents on film or paper. The Nabb Center has a collection of both microfilm (reels) and microfiche (flat film) that can be read, scanned, and printed on specialized equipment in our microform room. Materials vary by state and county and dates available, but there is a variety of surveys, tax lists, judicial and church records, as well as debt books.
