Air Drying Procedures:

Damp microfilm on rolls:

  • Place the roll on a rewind station. Unroll the film one section at a time onto a new core and dry by using a handheld blow dryer on cool temperature.
  • To prevent drying and fusing or any moist sections on the remaining rolled portion, cover with plastic while working on the unrolled sections.

Damp microfiche:

  • Place face-up on an absorbent material to air dry the front.
  • Dry by using a clothes line and clips at one or two corners. (Wick water from an edge with absorbent paper to speed drying.)
