Measurable Outcomes

This project definitely achieved our goal of updating our microfilm reader. It exceeds our expectations with the use of Searchable Text Tools (research word is high-lighted on a page), an image bin stores images and then can be printed on one page and great viewing on the 24" flat panel monitor. The ease of operation is great.
