Most of what you see here are popular magazines from the late 1970’s to the late 1980’s: Time, Business Week, The Atlantic, Forbes…you get the drift. My library must have kept an archive of this material back in the day. I knew it was there at one point, but had completely forgotten about it. Then one day I opened the wrong drawer on the microfilm cabinet and BAM! MICROFICHE! I was reminded that this stuff was still taking up residence. Just hanging out, about a decade’s worth of magazine microfiche and one Granger poetry reference series.
So I did the only thing I could do. I got a cart and loaded it up. It was heavy, you guys. That’s a lotta fiche!
The envelopes holding the individual slides are quite nice, though. I emptied about 50 or so and kept them for other uses.
Meanwhile, this stuff has got to go. There’s nothing of value here, so it will probably get recycled (although apparently the silver kind could be hazardous, so I first have to figure out what kind I have and then figure out who will take it.)
My library doesn’t even have a microfiche reader!
