Harriet Irving Library Introduces New Microcard Printer

The Harriet Irving Library announces the acquisition of a microcard/microprint reader and printer. A screen scanning device allows the Indus Opaque Reader to be converted into a print station where library users, including the public, can now produce print copies from our opaque microcard collections. The new technology helps users take better advantage of many valuable collections, such as, Early American Imprints First Series, Early American Newspapers, Great Works of American Literature based on Jacob Blanck’s Bibliography of American Literature, Albert Einstein’s Collected Writings, British Sessional Papers, and US Government Documents Microcard Collection.

This latest innovation in microform technology is available in the Microforms Department on the third floor of the Harriet Irving Library. The Microforms Department’s summer hours are 8:00am to 5:00pm during which time the Microforms staff will be happy to assist you. Please contact the Microforms staff if you need to make arrangements to use the microcard printer outside of these office hours.

NOTE: Microcard printing costs $0.15 per page.

For more information, please contact the Microforms Department.
