Scan Pro 2000 – Digital Microform Reader

December 06, 2012 at 4:23 PM

You might be asking yourself, what is a microform reader? Historically, they are the huge machines that you would see in libraries and they were used to look at microfilm or microfiche. We, here at the Henrietta Public Library, have a microfilm collection in our Local History area. It consists of the Henrietta Post starting in the 1960’s, the Henrietta Weekly Journal also starting in the 60’s, as well as census records and other important Henrietta Historical Documents. Instead of coming in and using a big clunky old machine, now you can view these films on our new digital microfilm reader!  It uses a computer for viewing and has software you can use to adjust the condition of what you are viewing to make it more optimal.  Looking at microfilm has never been so easy!
