  Types of Microforms "Microform" is a general term used to describe the microfilm, microfiche, or microprints (micro-opaque) used for the storage of documents that have been photographed and reduced in size in order to conserve space or to preserve materials that deteriorate : Eric Novotny. The University Libraries house microforms, or printed matter reproduced in a greatly reduced format, in several locations, depending on subject area. Microforms include: microfiche (3"x5" and 4"x6"); microfilm (16mm and 35mm reels); and microcards (3"x5" and 6"x9" opaque cards bearing microprint documents). Microforms housed in remote storage at our Depository can generally be retrieved within 24 hours of request.
