Quality analysis

Today I saved a few test images of a couple of our titles to compare to microfilm at the Los Angeles Public Library. I want to see if their copies are more legible than ours, and if it would be possible to get duplicate copies if they are.

The Eagle Rock Sentinel, Volume 10 no. 10, January 14, 1915

I have been utilizing the UC Riverside’s California Newspaper Project catalog and the Library of Congress’ U.S. Newspaper Directory to locate other institutions that may have better microfilm copies of the titles in our collection, but have discovered that few libraries collect these titles.
