Measurable Outcomes

The Minolta6000 replaced an old machine that was no longer working. For this reason, the outcome of retaining the same number of working machines for visitors to access microfilm in a timely and accessible manner was achieved. The type of machine was chosen by visitors. This also achieves our goal of making the machines easy to use for everyone.
