Micromaterials

Collections

A wide range of materials is represented, including both old and recent volumes of journals and newspapers, theses, and books. Also included are huge microform sets. These materials are all searchable through Quick Find.  You can search for new micromaterials, new books and other media from the new books search page of the Library Catalogue.

The library has an extensive microform collection. Much of it is out of print  so is impossible to obtain in print format even though it is still important for research purposes.  Therefore the Library acquires large microform sets of materials in many subject areas relevant to study and research at the University of Regina.


Microform Sets

A collection of journals, books, newspapers, and pamphlets which give comprehensive coverage of materials published during certain time periods, and/or on specific subjects. For example, Pre-1900 Canadiana (a set produced by the Canadian Institute for Historical Micro reproductions) includes every book, pamphlet, and broadside published by or about Canada or Canadians prior to 1900.  Other examples are Early English Books;  Pollard and Redgrave, 1475-1640; A Bibliography of the Prairie Provinces to 1953 (a collection of books and pamphlets); and the Gerritsen Collection of Women's History (women's social, cultural, and political history from the Renaissance to the end of World War II). 

The individual items in some sets may be  listed in Quick Find. Others come complete with their own paperbound indexes and descriptive guides or have electronic indexes accessible over the Web.
