We have one and have been pleased with its abilities.
I'll forward your inquiry to the librarian who has the hands-on experience with it.

Subject: [Videolib] FW: microform scanners

Along with Managing the media collection I am also responsible for the microform collection in our library. There was some discussion on this list about a year ago about the STImaging ST200 Digital Film Scanner. We are looking into replacing some of our old Minolta Reader/printers with this unit. If your institution owns one of these I would like to know if patrons find it easy to use, the quality of the scans and the durability of the product.

Thank you,

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
