New Microfilm Reader at LoC

Anything to make the reading of micofilm easier….

A note from Rob Farr, “Oh, Oh! Guess what! The Library of Congress Motion Picture Reading Room has a new microfilm reader that will let you scan images to your thumb drive. Yes, you still have to scroll the pages slowly to find what you’re looking for, but the pdfs are clean and hi-rez (about 400-500 kb). Just think, you walk in with nothing but a thumb drive and … walk out with hundreds of pages on that drive. Even if you just think something might be interesting, hit “scan” and read it a home. Oh, Oh! I’m geekin’ out!”
