Microform Utilization: The Academic Library Environment. Report of Conference held at Denver, Colorado, 7-9 December 1970.
Morrison, Alta Bradley, Ed.
The use of microforms in academic environments has become a general source of concern to all those involved with it. To some extent, the issues underlying the concerns of these groups can be summarized as a question: How can an academic library achieve full benefit from microform media? To develop information and to probe the difficulties of managing and using library microforms, a conference was held at the University of Denver in December 1970. The overall perspective of the conference treated the library administrator as a mediator between competing interests and forces that are operative in the sphere of academic microform applications. The purposes of the meeting were to foster understanding and use of microform technology in academic libraries, enhance the utility of educational microforms through the exchange of ideas, and inform the academic library community and industrial sector of microform techniques, systems and requirements in an academic setting. Taken as a whole, this document reports constructive comment for the development of more effective microform utilization in the academic environment in differing situations. (Author/SG)
