All UHM microfilm are assigned S#-style call numbers. Preservation has determined that it is safe to mix different emulsions together on the storage shelves, so the separate call number runs are no longer needed. However, at the current time (08⁄23⁄07) there are no plans to re-mark and integrate the existing runs.
*UHM-Filmed microforms have a default of:
