Microforms may be utilized by the medical libraries established in each VA (Veterans Administration) hospital and domiciliary Microforms are used for housing and using books, journals, monographs, reports and other library materials which are unavailable except in microform or whose retention in hardcopy cannot be justified. The most common formats for microforms in libraries are 16 mm. and 35 mm. film in either open reels or cartridges and microfiche. The characteristics of each of these and other formats are detailed in Chapter 2. Microforms require the use of a reader which projects an enlarged microimage for viewing. The characteristics of readers and reader-printers are detailed in Chapter 3.
