Microfilm scanning and digital information

Libraries have always been a prominent resource for documents, archives, films and printed information, but microfilm scanning allows these documents to be preserved digitally. While physical documents are susceptible to deterioration over time or due to environmental circumstances, a digital rendering of such documents can be preserved and referenced for years to come. Microfilm Equipment and Supplies Inc. has been in the business of digitally archiving valuable information for decades. We offer peace of mind to our clients who are looking for assurance that their most valued documents will be preserved. This type of technology is essential to the advancement of library technology and will serve as a notable addition to the innovations featured at the ILA Annual Conference.
