Microfiche

Invented in 1961, microfiche is a plastic sheet containing miniaturized copies of pictures and text.  Libraries and other institutions used microfiche as a space-saving device to store records – up to 100 pages of documents can be stored on a card.  A special magnifier was needed to read the records.
