The Datamation Guide to Digitizing Your Microfilm

Why Should You Digitize Your Microfilm?

While microforms (microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards) have been used for years to store and preserve important information, they are highly susceptible to damage from improper storage conditions. They also cannot be read without a microfilm reader, making your valuable information quite difficult to access.

Who has time to find a microfilm reader?

When you're doing research for your industry, finding a microfilm reader and then scrolling through thousands of images to find the right record is unnecessary and inconvenient. Digitizing your microfilm allows anyone with access to the records and to a computer to find the record you need.
