Located on the 2nd floor, Paterno, we provide consultation and support services for the library's government information and microforms collections. The University Libraries collect and provide research services for government information from federal, state, and international governments. Librarians provide assistance in legal research, public policy, discovery, and use of government statistics and data, as well as expertise in research that utilizes governmental resources. Our microform collections include over 96,000 reels of microfilm, 144,000 pieces of microfiche, and 12,000 microopaque sheets along with instruction and equipment to read, view, and make digital scans of the content.
