Welcome to the Microfilm Archives Research and Security System (MARSS), a database for accessing information about microfilmed records at the Wyoming State Archives

Since the 1950's, the Wyoming State Archives has been microfilming records and receiving records on microfilm. Archives staff have compiled the index information in a Microfilm Database, allowing information about microfilmed records to be available through the Internet.

Our microfilm collection includes records from state and local government agencies, private collections, and a few federal documents. We have almost all of the Wyoming newspapers on microfilm. Database searches can be conducted using the agency name, county office, or record title or description. Most of the microfilm is available for research, but if the research copy is with the agency of record, you will need to contact that agency regarding access to the film.

Microfilm may be viewed in the reference room of the Wyoming State Archives. Reference room hours, address, and contact information are available at http://wyoarchives.state.wy.us/Archives/Visit.aspx. Paper copies of microfilm images can be printed.

If you can’t visit the State Archives, you can obtain newspaper microfilm through interlibrary loan. Contact the reference desk at your local library. Newspaper microfilm is available from the University of Wyoming and can be researched at your library. The Wyoming State Archives does not participate in interlibrary loan. Rolls of microfilm may also be purchased. Please check our fee schedule at http://wyoarchives.state.wy.us/Archives/CopyFee.aspx for current prices. Archives staff can conduct a limited amount of research for you.
