Sorry about the delay. I have been going through the process of purchasing a new microfilm machine for the History Room. Yet this is not just your run of the mill every day machine. No- this machine will actually digitize the article on the roll, allow you to clean up the image, sharpen it and then print it out with a clear crisp image. It will also let you send the image right to email- thus allowing your patron just to put that article into whatever context they wish. Pretty neat huh? Im exited. We might actually be able to create a searchable database- wouldn't that be so cool! We will have people flocking from everywhere.
So I thought that I'd share that bit of happy news before I got into my topic for today.
