Many microfilm listed in the catalog are those on “extended” or “permanent” loan from the Family History Library (FHL) in Salt Lake City. Other users of the MFHC have paid to retain these films on site. Other films were purchased by MCGS from the National Archives. These “permanent” films are located in the lower portion of the film cabinet. The FHL or NARA number is on the film box. There are other microfilms in the Reader Room but these are not in the catalog and are only at MFHC for a short time. The “permanent” films are above the permanent collection and below the microfiche collection.
All of the microfiche collection is on extended loan. It is filed in the top of the film cabinet by its MCGS Call#.
ALL ITEMS IN THE MCGS LIBRARY COLLECTION ARE NON-CIRCULATING. They must be used on-site.
