Using microfilm at the Hull History Centre

How the service works

The microfilm readers are available to book on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We have 8 microfilm readers. To guarantee yourself a reader you may wish to book in advance, and you will be allocated one at the point of booking. Please only use the reader allocated to you.

You will be able to book a microfilm reader between 9.30am-4.30pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If you need to cancel your booking, please let us know at the earliest opportunity so we can reallocate the reader for another user.

You can print out items from the microfilm readers. Please see our List of fees for details of printing charges. Contactless payment is available.
