One of the biggest parts of being a reference librarian where I am is the local history/genealogy room.  It's always in use, sometimes just one person, but usually multiple people.  There are four microfilm machines and four computers (for ancestry library and heritage quest), and sometimes, they're all full.  We also get a volunteer from the local genealogy society in there three times a week.

Microfilm vs microfiche:  Microfilm is on a spool (like a VHS tape) while microfiche is flat.
