Microfilm Scanning Service

Convert Your Microfilm into Searchable PDFs & Other Digital Image Formats

Digitizing 16mm and 35mm microfilm into PDF, TIFF or JPG images gives you faster access, easier sharing and protects the film from fading and becoming unreadable.

This is especially important if you’ve handled your microfilm lately and found any blemishes, brittleness or a vinegar-like smell. While there are claims that microfilm can last up to 500 years, the conditions that would be necessary – zero humidity and no temperature changes – are difficult for most facilities to maintain.

Trust MetaSource to scan your microfilm and avoid the need to invest in costly microfilm conversion equipment and supplemental labor.
