Introducing the ST Imaging Microfilm ViewScanner

Have you ever wondered if there is a way to view old newspapers?  Does the thought of having to frequently zoom in to read small-print electronic articles (either required for class or vice versa) cause your mind to spin?  Well, in case you do not know or remember, the library does have a utilized, tried-and-true method that makes it easier and more efficient to read those minutely small-text documents.

Known as the ST Imaging Microfilm ViewScanner, it is an electronic device through which documents (stored as micro-form) can be easily and accessibly viewed. Quite simply, micro-forms refer to various forms of media, usually film or paper, which contain micro-reproductions (e.g. full and small text or images that are too small to see with the eyes). By using the ViewScanner, you can now read documents that would otherwise be difficult to see.  

The ViewScanner is located on the library's first floor in the Microform Reading Room.
