Microforms are scaled-down reproductions of documents, typically either films or paper, made for the purposes of transmission, storage, reading, and printing. Microform images are commonly reduced to about one twenty-fifth of the original document size.
All microform images may be provided as positives or negatives, more often the latter.
Three formats are common: microfilm (reels), microfiche (flat sheets), and aperture cards.
Microcards, a format no longer produced, were similar to microfiche, but printed on cardboard rather than photographic film.
SPECIALIST CARD FILM SCANNING
An aperture card is a type of punched card with a cut-out window into which a chip of microfilm is mounted. Such a card is used for archiving or for making multiple inexpensive copies of a document for ease of distribution. The card is typically punched with machine-readable metadata associated with the microfilm image, and printed across the top of the card for visual identification.
