Microforms in a Medical Library Environment.
Basile, Victor A.; Kapadia, Sushila
A microform program is proposed based on the availability of the microforms and the literature requirements of a growing health science community. The program concentrates on miniaturized serials, government-sponsored research reports, and micrographic catalogues. It considers their acquisitions, format, and organization; itemizes the hardware necessary for their viewing; and makes recommendations for their storage. Effective utilization of microforms is emphasized by illustrating reading environments to take place in a new medical library facility. Important sources of information on acquisitions and equipment evaluation are included, as well as a list of references. (Author/LS)
