“I highly recommend the ST ViewScan to any institution or organization that routinely uses microfilm and or microfiche.”

A bit in love with the LoC’s microfilm machines. You can *crop* and *scan* and *adjust images on a computer screen* and then *save them*.



“The ST ViewScan makes my job easier and more efficient, true, but the really rewarding thing is seeing patrons adjust so easily and readily to the new reader.”
