Microfilm Collection Guide:

The Microfilm Collection contains numerous reels obtained from the National Archives and Library of Congress, including the Office of Indian Affairs Register of letters sent and received, Indian Agency Records of the office of Indian Affairs and the Secretary of War, and microfilm copies of archival collections and papers from various private and state historical societies.

There are approximately one thousand microfilm reels stored in four microfilm cabinets. The collection is almost completely indexed with entries referring to tribes, individuals, and lands. A small number of reels are not itemized and these are noted where they occur in the microfilm index. The reels are arranged in numbered drawers by source and/or subject matter.
