Penrose Library has two Microfilm ScanPro 2000 workstations, located outside the Research Center, which can be used to view, print, and digitize images from all types of microforms, including microfilm, microfiche, and microopaque. (For more about microforms, see our What is microfilm or microfiche? Good Answers blog post.)
The scanner allows cropping so that you can capture the whole page of a newspaper or just the desired portions of a document. Multiple pages can be saved into a single PDF document, which can then be transferred to a jump drive or emailed. The PDF can be viewed in Adobe Reader to take advantage of the zoom feature.
We have instructions posted at the workstations, and, when open, staff at the Research Center desk can assist.
