  1. Hello! Does HKIC have a microfilm reader, preferably with scanning or printing functions? Thank you!

  2. Hi Robert,

    The HKIC is not the home of the microflim reader. That machine is located in the reference section of the library. The current machine does have the ability to print but at the moment it cannot scan.
