Microfilming records is an expensive procedure requiring careful planning and cost justification.

This leaflet deals with the reasons for microfilming, the kinds of records to film, conducting a feasibility study and considerations in the actual conversion.

In addition, there are useful discussion of computer-assisted retrieval and computer output microfilm in local government.

This leaflet is a companion to the Technical Leaflet on Micrographics in this same series.
