-===== **Microforms Cataloging History**: ===== 
- 
-All microforms are now cataloged to the W.E.B. Du Bois Library. Formerly, microforms were cataloged to the former three branch libraries: Music Library, Morrill Biological Science Library, and the Physical Sciences and Engineering Library. Former science microforms call numbers are prefaced by "​S"​. For example Microfiche S221, which distinguishes it from Microfiche 211, which was a Du Bois collection. This is an important distinction to bear in mind when looking for microforms, as the "​S"​ series and regular series are in different cabinets. ​ Music Library microforms have been incorporated into the Du Bois numbering scheme.
