Abstract : A Defense-wide study, in cooperation with GSA to: Evaluate the availability and applicability of advanced microform and equipment to the Federal Catalog System (FCS) and Defense Integrated Data System (DIDS) publications requirements; recommend a type of microform and compatible reader for standardization throughout the DoD; and develop a procurement specification for use in acquiring the DoD standard microform and retrieval equipment. The report reviews the development and current state-of-the-art of microform technology, applications within industry and Government, and evaluates various forms and reduction ratios for cost effective application to the Federal Catalog System publications at a 48:1 reduction ratio and to procure compatible 48X readers. The report's recommendations have been approved, by the ASD(I+L), for implementation. (Author)
