Microform reading equipment -library equipment, Other Management


Some aspects of  microform reading room and storing equipment are already discussed above. You are going to learn more about micrographics (including production equipment) and reprographics in other courses. What is mentioned here is the need for acquiring user aid equipment for micrographics.

It is important to develop micrographics as a system and decide on the formats, types, reduction ratios, sources of procurement, organisation, maintenance, quality control and inspection. Apart from reader, reader-printer or projector, quality control as well as cleaning and maintenance equipment are also required. For more details including generation of specialisation, evaluation and selection,  you may consult references cited.

As mentioned earlier, micro forms, usually found in a special library are slides, microfilms, microfiche, microcards and aperture cards. To read their contents special devices are  necessary-microform reader, reader-printer and projector. Now-a-days many satisfactory microform reading machines are available in the market, and new improved ones are being developed steadily. While some of the simpler, ones admit only one type of form-either microfilm or microfiche-most of the machines these days can handle more than one format with only a change of the adapter. There are some which have the facility to make copy of a particular page, by mere press of a button. Catalogues and guides are available which give information about new micro-reproduction equipment being  developed and marketed.
