Materials on microcard Anita Gordon-Gilmore 30 Jan 1997 17:17 UTC

   Are many libraries still using microcard materials?
   ... or have you been able to switch this material to another format?

   I think that we have the last living (and I use the term loosely) microcard
reader in existence. This is not a reader/printer. Does such exist?

   This is old and poor technology, but we still have patrons who want this
information from microcard. We are unable to get replacement bulbs for our

   Even if we could get a good reader or reader/printer, we would rather not.

   Has anyone been able to "re-archive" microcard materials into a more usable
format? When? Where? How? How much$?

   You may reply to me, rather than the list.  Thanks!
