If the words “microfilm” or “microfiche” mean something to you, you’ll be interested to learn that the Library has recently purchased five new micro readers that are now available in the micro reading area on the first floor of the Dana Porter Library.
These new micro readers bring a whiff of modern to the micro research experience. Besides being sleeker in appearance, the biggest perk of using these machines is that you can capture and save screen selections as PDF, TIFF, and JPEG files onto your USB key, CD, or DVD.
In addition to saving screen images, you can also print to the Library’s networked printers (cost is 8 cents + tax per printed side, or 40 cents + tax for colour printing).
The new micro readers also offer enhanced options for viewing and correcting selections.
They work with microfiche, microfilm, and microcards.
