Microforms for Kentucky Public Libraries.
Rogers, JoAnn V.
Some practical information about microforms is provided for librarians, with specific help for those in Kentucky. The information given includes a brief history of microforms as well as discussions of: advantages and disadvantages of microforms, types (fiche and film rolls), selection, and bibliographic access through indexes. Availability of microforms through cooperative projects and interlibrary loan is discussed with particular reference to the Kentucky Cooperative Library Information Project (KENCLIP) and its union list of periodicals produced in computer output microfilm (COM) format. Terminology needed for informed purchasing is given along with pertinent information on microform preservation of local history materials, newspapers, and genealogical sources. A list of publishers' addresses and a bibliography (partly annotated) of guides, catalogs, periodicals, and periodical articles are included. (LS)
