Omni

Search Omni, the Queen's Library catalogue, to find books, ebooks, reports, maps and government documents.  This is the best place to start searching for the specific mine sites, as well as for mining books in general.  (Omni user guide.)

Once you have a book or article record...

Look at the Call Number if the document is not online.  A document entitled MICROLOG is in microfiche format.  These are held in cabinets in the Stauffer basement, and will need to be scanned with a microfiche reader. 

We have the following equipment available to access microform:

  • ScanPro 2000 (x4)
    Located close to the microfilm collections on the lower level of Stauffer Library (see floorplan). The ScanPro software offers a wide variety of viewing and editing functions.  Scanning is free.
  • Konica Minolta MS6000 MKII
    Located next to the microform collection, the Konica Minolta reader will view microfilm and microfiche. 
    See the Manufacturer's Guide (user documentation is also attached to the equipment). You can also read the help guide (PDF).  Scanning is free.

Look at the Subjects.  These as headings used to catagorize documents.  Once you click on one of these headings, you will see all the books and documents described by that heading.
