You might think that microform has gone the way of the dinosaurs now that we have digital storage and search. Far from it. Microform remains the archival medium of choice. Whether it’s theses, architectural drawings, wallpaper or newspapers, microform is your guarantee that your content will still be useable 500 years from now with proper storage. Sceptical? Think of VHS videocassettes, laserdiscs…where are they now? Can you even buy a VCR today?
