dc.description.abstractInformation maintained in a digital format which enables full-text search and retrieval capabilities provides significant advantages over hard-copy or microfiche based information. Recent advances in optical storage technology and full-text retrieval software have made it possible to maintain and access large information bases quickly and inexpensively. Conversion from existing microfiche format to an optical format is possible^although still quite expensive. A case study concerning conversion of microfiche from the Naval Postgraduate School Knox Library Research Reports Division is presented to demonstrate the costs and benefits of having information in a full-text format. Alternatives to full backfile conversion are presented with policy recommendations for organizations considering implementing optical storage systems.en_US
