Frame Numbers

When using microfilmed copies of loose papers or un-numbered bound pages, look beyond the actual image and determine if frame numbers were inserted apart from the image. These frame numbers can serve as a "page" number so that the specific item can be referred to when creating a citation. Digital images made from microfilm may also include these frame numbers--assuming the original microfilming process included them in the first place.

Of course, if the documents have page numbers then use those in creating your citation.
