Subject: Microfilm: Positive or Negative

We have large collections in both positive and negative microforms.  The
patents and the ERIC microfiche are the most widely used of our negative
microforms.  Years ago we had reader/printers that used dry-silver paper
and made negative copies.  The patrons were not pleased with the product.
We now use Minolta RP 605Z reader/printers, which can make positive copies
from both positive and negative microforms.  We've been happy with the quality
of the copies.
