Facilities for viewing and scanning both microfilm/fiche are available in the main Liverpool Campus Library.


There are 3 machines available in the Microform Area on the Ground Floor of the Grove Wing near to Special Collections and Archives (SCA):

  • a reader- scanner 
  • a film and fiche reader
  • a film only reader.

To view see the attached file.

The reader-scanner allows both microfilm and microfiche documents to be digitised and then saved directly to a USB stick. The reader/scanner can be booked in advance or on the day (subject to availability). To make a booking please ask at the HelpDesk. 

For details on using the digital scanner-printer click see the attached files.

For both the film and fiche reader and the film reader machines pre-booking is not required. The film only reader has the advantage of a larger viewing screen than the other two machines.

Please ask at the HelpDesk if you wish to use these machines.

There is also a read-only machine for viewing both film and fiche in Special Collections and Archives (SCA) on the Ground Floor of the Grove Wing. Contact for details.


A reader-printer for viewing both film and fiche is available to use on the Upper Ground Floor of the library. Bookings are taken for use of the machine.

Printing is available via use of a copy card obtained from the HelpDesk. Print charges are 10p per copy.

For details on using the microprinter contact the HelpDesk.
