The micrographic system utilizes microimaging in the areas of space saving, reproducibility, durability, file integrity, and automated retrieval. This manual about micrographics is organized into 10 chapters, each covers a major facet of the system. The first chapters cover the basics of the system: objectives, classification, searching and retrieval, and standards. Utilization, selection, and systems design are covered in the remaining chapters. Appendixes include a glossary of micrographics terms, English/Metric conversion tables, and published standards by category. Over 60 figures include photographs, flowcharts, microcopy resolution test charts, and facility requirements. (DS)
