Digital microfilm scanner equipment in the UK

On demand and production microfilm, microfiche and aperture card scanning equipment

Modern imaging technology enables microfilm and microfiche collections to be scanned improving access to the valuable information held on the media. Original microfilms can be returned to archival storage for long term secure retention, whilst the new digital copies are now free for convenient distribution and/or manipulation.

There are two types of microfilm scanners available - on-demand and production:
