New Business - Chairman, Roger Connett Neighbors Library gets new state-of- the art tectlnology .... lip ! Members of the Sundance Friends of the Library with the new Microfilm Reader/Printer - Marjorie Goodson, Diane Leslie, Jeanne Wyatt, Linda Rogers and Jeanette Smith. State-of-the-art technology has come to Crook County Library in the form of a new ST ViewScan Digital Microfilm and Microfiche Scanner System. It replaces an old Minolta RP603Z microfilm reader/printer, which was over 20 years old. The microfilm reader/printer is housed at the main library in Sundance and is used by patrons and staff doing research in our newspaper microfilm or genealogical micro- film obtained through interlibrary loan. The old system was for in-library use only; the new system can be accessed remotely from all branch libraries or a patron's home com- puter. The mission of the Crook County Public Li- brary System is to "enable the people of Crook County to cherish their history and expand their personal horizons through free and eas- ily accessible information and services." This ST ViewScan System will allow ALL our staff and patrons to "read" microfilm via the in- ternet, whether they are located at the main library, one of our branches in Moorcroft or Hulett, or on their own home computer. They will have the ability not only to view the images, but to print, email or save them as well. The system uses digital technology and high-end camera optics, enabling images that have deteriorated to be "cleaned up." We are currently building a collection of microfilm on ALL newspapers in the county, back to their initial issues. Even though the early papers are available online through the Wyoming Newspaper Project, there are still several decades worth of papers that are only available through microfilm. Funding for this new system came from the library budget, a McMurry grant from the Wy- oming Community Foundation and a $2000 donation from the Sundance Friends of the Library.

"It's rough terrain with lots of gullies and ridges - he could have been in any of them, and it's hard for a plane to see," says Stahla. One of the search planes eventually headed north and west into Montana, locating the aircraft in Carter County, near Alzada. Hodge and Stah- la did not follow as the site was outside Crook County ju- risdiction, says the sheriff. Kovarik was found deceased at the crash site. The reason for the crash has not yet been confirmed, says Stahla. Call us today for your FREE Security Analysis Smoke & Fire Alarm Systems Complete Systems with Local Monitoring .
