We have a new film/fiche reader, which allows you to scan the film and save it as a PDF! It is located on the back, left hand side of the 2nd floor of the library. 


1.     Pull the carriage tray towards you to raise the protective glass pane

2.     Load the microfilm / microfiche


In the case of a microfilm please make sure that the film on the left reel comes from the top of the reel:



3.     Push back the carriage tray.



Turn on the machine:

Upper right hand corner

Bottom right hand corner (push up)



4.     Adjust the carriage tray placement so that the camera arm will be placed above the microform
