ABSTRACT

Microfilm has been used as an important media for enhancing the long term preservation and improving access to records. However, because of technological changes, there have been discussion about whether we should keep using microfilm. This paper presents survey results to review the preservation methods such as microfilming and digitization. The content is organized according to the trends found in the survey from six archives and libraries, including Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and Japan. Moreover, we refer to other papers from the USA and Japan to require further review if we can accept digitized records as the original records, etc. The rest consists of four parts: the use of microfilm as a storage media for preservation, the authenticity of digitized records, the management of records on microfilm, and the preservation of electronic media. Finally, we would like to suggest the way to improve preservation systems and digitize records more widely.
