Description of Available Equipment

The Microform Reading Room offers equipment that allows users to read materials in microfilm, microfiche, and microprint formats.  Patrons have an option to create digital copies of film at no charge or create printed paper copies free of charge.  Some machines have Internet access and the entire room offers access to the Yale wireless network. 

Current equipment includes:

Two ScanPro 2000:  These cutting edge machines are capable of automatically scanning an entire reel of microform.  Users can now load a reel of microfilm and have it turned to digital copy automatically. Files can be saved to a thumb drive, emailed or transfered using Yale's ITS file transfer service

Three ST-200 Digital Microfilm Scanner Systems:  These state of the art microfilm readers allow users to view microfilm, microfiche, and microprint, and scan images into multiple digital formats (including PDF). Like the ScanPro 2000, files can be saved to a thumb drive, emailed or transfered using Yale's ITS file transfer service

Two Minolta MS7000s:  These modern microfilm/microfiche readers create both digital and printed paper copies.
