More Information about Microfilm Conversion
Microfiche and microfilm are most commonly associated with public libraries, with books, periodicals, and newspapers converted and stored into microfilm format for compact, long-term storage and use. But the benefits of microfilm, microfiche, and aperture cards for document storage – namely longevity and relatively low storage footprint – meant that these formats were used for a variety of purposes, not just for libraries.
Engineering firms, banks, law firms, government offices, military organizations, and more all used to rely heavily on microfilm to store sensitive records and documents.
In the digital age, though, microfilm is a bulky and inefficient alternative to digital document storage, which has a physical footprint no larger than a hard drive and lets users search through thousands of pages of documents for a single keyword in a matter of seconds.
What Does Microfiche & Microfilm Conversion Cost?
Converting microfilm and microfiche into digital images or PDFs is not an overly expensive process when one considers the long term savings in storage costs and improved productivity. Specific costs will depend on the type of film to be converted, the amount of film being converted, and a variety of other factors.
