NARA descriptive pamphlets OR roll lists are available FREE online to  
download or print out through our "Order Online" system.  You do NOT  
need to register or buy anything.

Start here:

Click on the "microfilm" tab

then enter the microfilm publication number or search term of  
interest (or use advanced features, say, to search for a particular  
record group).  Anyway, let's say you put in the publication number  
A3437 - click search. It will show you the number (A3437), the title  
(in blue), the RG name and number and the number of rolls.

Click on the publication title.  That will take you to a new screen.   
Click on "View Important Publication Details" on the far right side    
- this will give you the descriptive pamphlet and allow you to (1)   
open & print or (2) download (then you can print)  (or, depending on  
your computer - it may just download automatically).

Not all descriptive pamphlets are online.  Sometimes, it's just the  
roll list.

Hope this helps.
