Goldsmiths'-Kress Microfilm Series

The Goldsmiths'-Kress Library of Economic Literature microfilm series, published in 1972, provides microfilm of some 60,000 titles from the Goldsmiths' Library at the University of London and the Kress Collection at Baker Library, Harvard Business School. There is also a small selection of titles from several additional libraries.

Not all of the titles in the Kress Collection are included in the Goldsmiths'-Kress microfilm series. Only a portion of the Kress Collection was filmed when the microfilm series was created in 1972. In addition, there have been substantial new additions to the Kress Collection in the intervening decades.

Not all of the titles in the Goldsmiths'-Kress microfilm series are in the Kress Collection. However, a substantial number of the titles in the microfilm series are available in the Kress Collection. Often the title is available in the Kress Collection even if the copy on film is from another library.

Preceding each title on the film there is a card identifying where the original is located. To clarify whether a title in the Goldsmiths'-Kress microfilm series is available in the Kress Collection, please contact the Historical Collections reference staff.
