Jump to: navigation, search

A continuous roll of photographic film, used for storage of miniaturized text which can be read only with magnification by a reader/printer machine. In some libraries, back files of periodicals are routinely converted to microfilm to save space. Reader/printer machines are usually available in libraries with microfilm holdings for viewing and making copies.
