(Hi-res version of this photo here.) This shows the date and page number at the top of the page, confirming it really is from the on the microfilm machine itself, proving it’s a physical artifact, not a digital Photoshop creation.
(Hi-res version of this photo here.) Note also that the review directly above Obama’s review is of a book about domestic terrorists and bombers. And this is a screenshot of the Lexis-Nexis listing on the library’s computer, proving that the review is part of the official digital archives.
