Discarding Microfiche Crystal Holland 09 Oct 2008 15:18 UTC

Does anyone have advice or a retention policy that they'd be willing to
share with me regarding discarding microfiche? We have a real space crunch
here due to order fiche to replace bound journals that were are discarding.
How long should we reasonably keep the fiche though? We are looking into
buying 2-3 additional fiche and film cabinets but we have finite amount of
space dedicated to housing this material.

Thanks in advance!
