International Council on Archives. Microfilm Committee.
The Microfilm Committee of the International Council on Archives grew out of various international meetings which began in 1966 with a congress on "Archives for Scholarship--Encouraging Greater Ease of Access." Meetings since then have resulted in recommendations that (1) archives and records should be fully microfilmed and widely distributed for use by researchers; (2) member countries should publish lists of their microfilm; and (3) a group should be established to coordinate microfilm technology information, assist archivists, and issue the present bulletin. This first issue includes a history of the organization; recommendations; a list of corresponding members; articles on microfilm programs in Canada, Hungary, the German Federal Republic, India, Spain, and Macedonia (Yugoslavia); a description of the Mormon genealogical records microfilm holdings; a short item on book cradles used during filming; and technical articles on microfilm salvage after floods and the cause and prevention of microfilm blemishes. Summaries in French, Spanish, and German are provided for some of the articles. (LS)
