These days, more and more use being made of microforms-microfilm, microfiche, micro opaque cards, slides, video cassettes, etc., for recording and storage of information. While storage of these materials need special care, viewing of these materials need special equipment and a different environment (usually subdued light, controlled temperature, humidity, etc.) than obtaining in normal reading rooms. Special reading rooms are set apart for such type of materials. Since each reader has to be provided with individual reading area, more space per reader has to be provided than in a general reading room. About 150 sq ft area is required for one  unit of microform reader. A library may also have a microform production equipment either in the same section or a seperate section.
