One thing is to check what form the periodical comes in electronically. PDF is superior to microforms but plain text doesn't work for ones where images are important.

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.
