9 June, 2007  -  New Kodak film reader

We now have our new Kodak film reader up and running.  You are able to read films or fiche and save the information directly to your flash drive as a .jpg file to take home to work with or print out on our laser printer.  You will also be able to crop the info so you are only getting what you want and not a lot of things of no relevance to your research.
