How to search the collection
There is an index at the end of each volume. Each entry in the index has a number (or sometimes several numbers). Use that number to find the page in the microfiche. The pages are clearly written on the top of the microfiche card. Sometimes the volumes are divided into parts, so pay careful attention to what part your document number is in.
There is an explanation of the scope of the collection on the first microfiche.
