The microfilm as a medium for long term preservation is still alive. Especially in the archives the microfilm is part of their strategies. But also libraries are using microfilm until today - although it's not a user friendly media type and access to information is very limited and uncomfortable. The goal of this paper is to give an overview about the current status of analogous technology and analogous Long Term Preservation (examples, standards and tendencies), current status of digital Long Term Preservation, analogous equipment, risk management, cost comparison digital vs. analogous, resume and practical hints. This paper will use experiences mostly from German examples but also international experiences from point of view of a vendor.
