Example text

Music Manuscripts from the Great English Collections is a facsimile microform edition of five great music collections, those of the Bodleian Library, Oxford, St. Micropublishers surveyed 53 Michael's College, Tenbury, Christ Church, Oxford, the British Library and the Royal College of Music, London. 35 mm silver halide, positive, archivally permanent, safety-base roll microfilm stock to ANSI standards is used, produced to NMA standards. There is a defective film replacement guarantee. There is concentration by this micropublisher on making available in microform some of the more important manuscript and other collections in the great British and European libraries to enable scholars to consult these documents in their own libraries — this is Harvester's policy rather than out of print journals or other re-issue micropublishing.

Bell & Howell claim to have more than 7000 titles listed and the catalogue gives full availability details of 150 American newspapers. Both catalogues are available on microfiche. Whereas the Index to the Times may well be adequate as a guide to the historical content of British newspapers in general, as well as the Times in particular, to study the USA with its vast area and regional life style, one needs indexes to many important newspapers. Bell & Howell are meeting this need, independently preparing and publishing them monthly with four 48 Micropublishers surveyed year cumulations of certain of them.

Being a popular weekly printed on newsprint rather than the heavier papers used in learned journals, New Scientist is the sort of publication for which it is difficult to satisfactorily store and use back-runs in libraries. This sort of paper stock gets tattered in use and is not suitable for binding. Thus if the librarian can subscribe additionally to a silver halide microfiche edition for his files of this title and regard the paper issue as consumable, an advantage is gained. Foreign libraries benefit, in addition, by rapid receipt of New Scientist microfiche by air mail.
