Digitization of microforms

From: Dean DeBolt <ddebolt>
Date: Monday, January 23, 1995
In response to a question on the list, our local microfilming company is
acquiring a microform scanner from Minolta. This equipment enables one
to view 16 and 35mm microfilm and capture the image digitally onto
computer disk or CD. The microfilming company is considering (1) selling
such equipment, and (2) becoming a service bureau to charge for scanning
film and giving you disks or CDs. They will be arranging a demonstration
for me as soon as possible.

Our interest is computer manipulation of Spanish document images on
microfilm whereby we might be able to create a chronological database by
manipulation of the images and translations. I'll post to the list when
I get more idea of costs.
