Abstract

The writer of an article for a professional journal always is confronted with a dilemma: unless he chooses deliberately to be obscure or provocative, he must select a title which is descriptive of the substance that follows, and at the same time he is not without obligation to keep the title within the limits of a title. The title of this paper is a compromise. Under it I shall assemble information on the policies with respect to microfilm and microfilming, the planning which precedes filming and the administration of the result, actual operations, the administration of microfilms and services connected with them, together with something of the historical background for the present.
