The PSU Library's collection of microfilm includes:
  • correspondence between reservation agents and the various incarnations of the U.S. governmental agency that oversaw Indian Affairs
  • records of those agencies
  • censuses of Indians
  • FBI files
  • government hearings

An example is the historical Cherokee Phoenix, a newspaper from the 1800s that was "printed under the patronage, and for the benefit of the Cherokee Nation and devoted to the cause of Indians."

These microfilm collections are included in the library catalog, and you can also find them through this inventory
