Basement, including how to get there

There are two ways to get the basement in the HIL – both the stairs and the elevator located near the Research Help Desk.

Microforms are available in the basement. 

Microform is a general term for material that contains a small image or microreproduction of a document.  These document images are usually found on film.  Since the images are so small, special readers/scanners are used to view the documents.

You will find many historical documents – including periodicals and books – available on microfilm. 

The HIL-STACKS main collection – the collection you will borrow most of your print books from – begins in the basement.  Books in the HIL-STACKS main collection, with call numbers A through D199, are located in the basement of the HIL.
