Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

International Standard ISO 11906 was prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 171, Document Imaging

Applications, Subcommittee SC 2, Application issues.

Micrographics — Microfilming of serials — Operating
procedures
1 Scope

This International Standard establishes general principles for microfilming printed serials for preservation and

distribution in libraries and other documentation services. It includes requirements for targets to ensure proper

bibliographic control and to verify that the film meets International Standards required for archival microfilming.

This International Standard is applicable only to silver-gelatin microfilms that are 16 mm or 35 mm wide, in rolls or

strips, and to A6 microfiche, including first-generation (camera negatives), intermediate, or distribution copies.

2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of

this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, any of these

publications do not apply. However, parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to

investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the normative documents indicated below. For

undated references, the lates edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of ISO and IEC

maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard, the terms and definitions given in ISO 6196 and the following apply.

3.1
serial publication

publication in print or non-print form that is issued in successive parts, that usually has numerical or chronological

destinations, and that is intended to be continued indefinitely, regardless of the frequencey of publication (term

2.1.1.2-01 in ISO 5127-2)
4 Rawstock microfilm

For rawstock microfilm, safety microfilm stock that complies with ISO 543 shall be used.

5 Film thickness

The thickness of the film, including support, sensitive layer, and any protective coating, shall be in accordance with

ISO 6148.
6 Image placement and reduction ratios

Image placement and reduction ratios shall be in accordance with ISO 6199 and ISO 9923.

6.1 Image positions

The four typical image positions for 16 mm and 35 mm microfilm are shown in Figure 1.

Key
1 Start of film

NOTE Positions 1A and 1B are single-page exposures. Positions 2A and 2B are double-page exposures. In positions 1A and

2A, the text is perpendicular to the long axis of the film. In positions 1B and 2B, the text is parallel to the long axis of the film.

Figure 1 — Image positions on roll microfilm

Image arrangement on microfiche shall follow ISO 9923. A typical image arrangement is shown in Figure 2.

6.2 Progression of text

For serials in languages that read from right to left and for other variations from the usual occidental language

arrangement, pages shall be positioned to allow for logical reading progression. See ISO 5123 and ISO 9923.

6.3 Reduction ratios for smaller pages and sectional filming

Pages that are smaller than the normal spread of the serial shall be filmed at a reduction ratio that is the same as,

or if necessary to achieve legibility, lower than, the reduction ratio used for other parts of the serial. If inserts or

foldouts are too large to be accommodated in position 1A (see Figure 1) without using a reduction ratio that is too

high to provide a legible image, the material must be filmed in sections. The sections shall be filmed from left to right

and from top to bottom, as shown in Figure 3 (unless in oriental orientation) and shall provide an overlap with

adjacent material of a
