We finally canceled microfilm this year, using the money earmarked for the microfilm payment to pay the annual fee for the ProQuest historical newspaper online version.

Subject: [SERIALST] New York Times on Microfilm


I would appreciate feedback about New York Times current microfilm subscription to see if libraries are continuing with this, and if not, what alternatives they are relying on for coverage.

I found a discussion thread relating to the question going back a few years in the listserv archive, but two years seems an eternity given changing patterns of use.

Thanks much,
