Abstract : In the design of microfiche systems, the 'small user' often gets lost amongst the larger needs of the libraries and information centers. He frequently is an individual working at his desk or bench, not as an adjunct of a library. The paper attempts to examine the small user and two aspects of the environment in which he works: a multiplicity of microfiche forms of varying quality and serviceability and reader equipment of often dubious utility. Acceptance by the user of microfiche as a medium within which he can work efficiently is seen as a critical need. To improve the degree of acceptance, this paper takes a look at what is on the market now and what appears to be forthcoming in the near future that will make the small user a better user of a medium that is here to stay.
