Frequently Asked Questions:

What is microfilm and microfiche, and why do I need to convert them to digital formats?

Microfilm and microfiche are physical storage formats for storing information, commonly used in the past for archiving and record-keeping. However, these formats are difficult to access and read, and with the advent of digital technology, they have become outdated and obsolete. More importantly, because of their age, most microfilm and microfiche files are gradually decaying, which can lead to irreversible loss of information. By converting your microfilm and microfiche to digital formats, you can preserve your valuable information and make it easier to access, without the limitations of physical storage.

How do I digitize microfilm?

Microfilm can be digitized using specialized equipment that scans each frame and creates a digital image file. The process can vary depending on the type and condition of the film, as well as the desired output format.
