Library gets grant to preserve microfilm
The D. Brown Library in Rosebud recently received a grant to help preserve microfilm.
Librarian Carolyn Brea said the $16,000 digitization project was entirely funded by a grant from the Ladd and Katherine Hancher Library Foundation and is hosted by Advantage Preservation.
The grant will digitally archive all 114 rolls of microfilm at the library, preserving the images since the microfilm is slowly deteriorating. The link to the archive can be found on the library’s website or here: http://rosebud.advantage-preservation.com/
The archive holds scanned images of The Rosebud News from 1893-2010, Falls County tax rolls from 1851-1910, and The Olney Enterprise from 1958- 1959. The archive is searchable, so users can search for specific names, places, or words.
Users can also print or download full pages or parts of the scanned images. The archive is completely free and available to the public If users need computer access to view the archive, the library provides computers appointments during open hours. You are asked to call ahead to reserve a computer.
