We have also cancelled a lot of microfilm, particularly with newspapers.
We do keep MF to magazines that don't have PDF graphics available to us
We did keep MF for the NYT and our local paper, since students often
need the photos and images for their research.

Hello everyone!

Our library is looking at cutting back our microfilm budget and I was
wondering if anyone can share information regarding this.  We're mainly
looking at criteria that we can use while evaluating what microfilm
titles to cut.
