Hello, all.

A little bit away from video. We need to purchase some new microfilm
reader printers and do have the equipment chosen. However, now our
director would like information on the future of microfilm since
everything is going digital. Our ASD head remembers seeing something
online, possibly in a British source that said microfilm is going to be
around for a long time, long after the digital material has
deteriorated. The article actually had someone holding up a cunieform
tablet saying that the tablet would last longer than digitization. Does
this sound familiar to anyone? These reader printers we want are state
of the art - clear and clean up fuzzy and faint film, and more. Thanks
in advance.
