Document Preservation



Document preservation imageMicroFormat is the leading service provider for preservation imaging in Europe and for more than thirty-five years the individual requirements of archivists and librarians across the United Kingdom and the continent have informed the growth of our specialist services. Our innovative approach to the safe handling of historic, paper-based records has earned us a reputation for care, quality and attention to detail and has led to us successfully executing the largest imaging projects ever undertaken in this country.

The techniques that we have developed in working with microfilm serve us well as we extend our facilities for digital imaging and our operations are enhanced by a full range of supporting services both pre- and post-capture.  Whether working from source documents, be they bound or loose, fragile or sound, large or small, or from existing microfilm, we have the equipment and the experience to handle your records safely and effectively with the technical awareness to give the product to suit the application.

Document preservation imageMicrofilm is now overshadowed, as a retrieval tool, by the almost unlimited flexibility available through digitisation but its great and abiding strength lies in its traditional and proven role, as yet unequalled by digital media, of providing archivally acceptable copy for long-term storage.

For those wanting digital imaging at the point of use and the comfort of having a future-proof surrogate, using microfilm as a platform for migration to a digital format offers the best of both worlds and MicroFormat is one of the few service providers to continue with a comprehensive microfilming service either to support an established use of the medium or as a route to digitisation.
