Microfiche Scanning

Whilst microfiche offers a fairly compact form of storage they can require expensive readers and printers, which can only be used by one person and are prone to breaking down. Unless you also have backup copies stored in a fire safe or off site, they may also be just as prone to disaster as the original documents. At TownsWeb Archiving we can scan your microfiche sheets and archive them with all your other documents, so any user can access them instantly from their desktop.

Capture the data within your Microfiche

Digitisation places your microfiche in the perfect format to capture the valuable data contained within them, offering great potential for system integration and online access and discovery.

Capture the data within your collection with handwritten transcription, identifying any handwritten or cursive script within images and converting this to searchable and machine readable textual metadata through a process of scanning. Using bespoke transcription validation software we can guarantee highly accurate results, carrying out any preprocessing measures required and outputting to any format.
