Microfilm readers 

digital microfilm readersThe History Centre has 8 digital microfilm readers in the Local Studies Library area.

These machines have a smaller footprint, and are capable of reading a variety of formats including microfilm, microfiche and aperture cards removing the need to swap or change machines.

They are all networked allowing users to print from any machine whilst digital technology allows users to rotate, flip and zoom to read the smallest of text quickly and easily. 

The machines use touchscreens but a mouse is also available.

You can phone in advance to reserve a reader (01482 317500).
