Microforms are scaled-down reproductions of documents, often newspapers and journals. They are usually in the form of a microfilm reel or microfiche, which is a flat film sheet. Microforms help the library save space when archiving lesser-used resources. Microform reading machines magnify these scaled-down reproductions, and allow you to make copies.
