8 Reasons to Digitize Microfilm Collections If your records department has records dating back to before the 1990s, and chances are you do, they are probably not digitized like those generated more recently. It’s not uncommon to retain archived microfilm or microfiche and rely on old school reader printers, but how exactly is this practice impacting your workflow and how can it be improved with budget restraints?

Key Dates in the History of Social Security President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act on August 14, 1935. Social Security taxes were first collected in January 1937, with workers and employers each paying one percent of the first $3,000 in wages and salary. In 1939 President Roosevelt signed legislation establishing benefits for survivors and dependents. Early retirement benefits, allowing people to draw checks at age 62, were enacted in 1956 for women and in 1961 for men. Internet Archive: A Future for Books The widespread success of digital reading devices has proven that the world is ready to read books on screens. As the audience for digital books grows, we can evolve from an environment of single devices connected to single sources into a distributed system where readers can find books from sources across the Web to read on whatever device they have. Publishers are creating digital versions of their popular books, and the library community is creating digital archives of their printed collections. BookServer is an open system to find, buy, or borrow these books, just like we use an open system to find Web sites. The BookServer is a growing open architecture for vending and lending digital books over the Internet.
