Microfiche Scanning

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.
