Paper Abstract

This paper states several unique advantages of holograms as carriers of book information. After comparing several methods of book information storage, the paper draws the conclusion that holographic libraries will be the main form of paperless information storage in the future. The paper gives a detailed report on the technological preparation and series of products which the author's corporation has made in the development of a holographic library. A computer external unit -- an ultrafiche scanner -- has been researched successfully. This scanner, which is no larger than a book, can display, print, and fax book information of the ultrafiche by the microcomputer. The author considers two special technologies still needed for the widespread use of holographic libraries: (1) how to develop holographic embossing techniques to produce cheaper ultrafiche on a large scale and, (2) research a micro-personal book reader. The author regards the realization of holographic libraries as a revolution for book information storage.
