The MSU Libraries has two new microform e-Readers - one in the Government Documents, Microforms, and Current Journals Area and a second machine in Special Collections. These Minolta MS 6000mkII machines and accompanying computers have br ought the world of microfilm and microfiche into the 21st century. Users can now download the microform images of their needed research to a jump drive or e-mail the pages to their e-mail accounts - all at no charge. Library personnel are on hand to give patrons a quick lesson on how to use the new machines and assist users if needed. Also attached to these new e-Readers are new laser printers giving users the option to print copies of their images.
LaDonne Delgado, Coordinator of Government Documents says "In such tough economic times, we are pleased to offer an easier and more economical alternative for faculty and students to obtain their research documents. The savings in paper helps our supplies budget and shows that we are doing our part to go 'green'." The Library is also using this new technology when delivering materials to other libraries via InterLibrary Loan. "Using this new machine, we can send materials requested by other institutions electronically." states Pam Beaty, Government Documents Library Assistant.
