Microform Scanning

With high-quality optical scanners, we offer microform to digital conversion services to affordably make the troves of information contained in microform much more accessible in digital format.

When Microform Images Made Sense

Once the preferred method of storing vast amounts of archival data, microform images are as much historic artifact as the information they contain. By reducing a document to a fraction of its original size, microform images were a convenient and efficient way to preserve documents such as archival engineering drawings, newspapers, books, financial records, and more.

Converting print materials into microform images:

  • Saves space
  • Protects rare print materials from loss or damage
  • Circulates duplicates of heavily used materials

Microform to Digital Conversions

While retaining the benefits of microform images, digital media costs less to store and is easier to access. Converting microform to digital will bring a return on your investment and it isn't as difficult as you may think.

It is old news that new digital technologies have superseded microform as a low cost document management solution. As an analog media format, the information contained in microform images can be difficult to access compared to the features of digital media that we’ve come to expect. Also, since they are too small to read with the naked eye, the images require special machines to be viewed.
