Whenever I have to do research that involves old newspapers, I always cringe at the thought of using a microfilm machine with an illegible printer.
Luckily, those research nightmares are a thing of the past. There are at least four reasons why researching old newspapers is no longer excruciatingly painful at the Waltham Public Library:
1. Our new microfilm machine is simple to use!
2. The new microfilm machine scans the images to a computer so that you can view and adjust your image before you print.
3. When you print, the quality is much better than the old machine because the image is sent to a laser printer.
4. You can save all images to a USB/flash drive.
