We splice constantly and have bought only two cabinets in the past ten years and those too for the newspapers since those could not be spliced. It is cheap, can be done by a part-time student, and very effective. If you want more information would be glad to talk to you

Our library is considering condensing roles of microfilm by splicing
several volumes/years together onto one reel. The idea is to utilize less
cabinet space and floor space. Has any library done such a project before?

We would be interested in any information you can provide. Any tips on how
to do this? I am particularly interested in your opinions on whether this
is a worth while project or not.

If anyone is interested, I will summarize responses for the list.

Thank You,
