Q. What are microforms?


Microforms are materials that contain microreproductions of documents that are commonly reduced to 1/25th of the original document size. This allows a vast amount of information to be stored in a small space. They come in several formats; microfilm which is film printed on a reel, microfiche which is film printed on flat sheets, and microcard which is printed on paper similar to an index card.
