With the advancement of technology, information has now become digital and can be easily accessed through various digital devices such as PCs, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
However, many organizations still rely on microfiche to store important records as it involves little risk of damage or loss. But using microfiche poses many problems:
- They can be read only on a special microfiche reader which is bulky and takes up space.
- A paper copy of a microfiche document can be taken only if a special printer is integrated into the machine.
- As color ink is rarely used in microform, photos and pictures often lose much of their appeal in this format.
- One of the biggest issues is when it comes to sharing microfiche documents – if the record is available only in microfiche, it can be viewed only at the location where the machine is physically located.
