Measurable Outcome(s)

We anticipated this project increasing the amount of researchers coming to our facility for research. Since installation, our organization has already seen people that have conducted research on various topics that had not previously used our microfilm readers ask about the new system. With inquiring about it, they are impressed by the system and asking for us to find them "jobs" they can do just to use the system that will benefit our organization.

We believe the new technology makes reviewing microfilm more appealing, as they are not sitting on the older machines that often times, make reviewing the microfilm difficult due to the screens and technology making the materials grainy and hard to see.
