What are microforms?

Microforms are pieces of film that contain reproductions of magazines, journals, and other materials. Because newsprint and other types of paper often decay, microforms are used as a method of preserving content. Microforms come in 3 formats: microfilm (on reels) and microfiche (sheets), and microprint (cards).
