Use a blank request form in RACER choosing “OTHER” as the requested material format.

Complete one request form for each reel of microfilm you require and include a microfilm reel number on each form.

Supply title details given from the citation source and include any author, publication date and additional publication details you have. When requesting microfilmed documents provide the supplied name of the records (census reel or newspaper name, for example) and make sure to include the appropriate date(s), and/ or specific alphabetic ranges. When in doubt, supply the website url for the citation in the special instructions field so staff can verify and locate your requested microfilm.
