We inherited aperture cards from another company.  The company made copies
of maps on Mylar, paper and aperture cards.  We never produced any.  The
answers to the survey are below.

I am curious how many organizations still use microfilm aperture cards.
If you do, please take a few moments and answer the following questions.
Reply to the list or directly to me, whichever you prefer.  I will
summarize for the list.

1. Does your organization use aperture cards? Yes, occasionally for
reference.  The Mylar copies of the maps are off site.  We look at the
aperture cards to decide whether it is necessary to recall the maps.

2. If so, what size microfilm do you load/mount in/on the cards? I think it
is 35mm.

3. Does your organization still produce aperture cards? No.  We never
produced them.

4. If so, what camera/equipment do you use? Not applicable

5. Are you still able to procure cards for loading or mounting the
microfilm? Not applicable.

6. If so, what brand or supplier do you use? Not applicable

7. Does your organization still have aperture card repositories (i.e.
records on aperture card microfilm?) Yes, we have one in our executive

8. If so, are the cards accessed? Yes, but less frequently because the maps
are now fairly old and we have performed exploration work in some of the
areas with more sophisticated equipment in the years since the maps were
created.  The original maps date from the 1960s to the 1980's.

9. What reader or reader-printer do you use? We use a Xidex International

10. Are you aware there are national and international standards for
microfilm aperture cards? Yes, I am, but I cannot tell you off the top of my
head what they are.
