Let’s take a step further back in information history. While paper had long been established as the standard medium for information, it dropped in popularity as an archival form in the 1920s when microfilm entered the commercial setting.
Between the 20s and the advent of the digital age, innumerable documents have been filmed and stored on archival film.
E-BizDocs has in-house solutions to digitize your microfilm and microfiche, and it is subject to the same standards as our document scanning service. Below, Project Manager Chris Kajano converts aperture cards to PDFs.
- Schenectady Museum: You may be familiar with the GE company newsletters that have been published throughout the company’s history in the Capital Region. The museum opted to have the delicate-with-age newsletters converted to microfilm because they wanted to keep an eyeball-readable form on hand. E-BizDocs then converted the microfilm to searchable digital images and delivered them back to the museum. Now they have a fully searchable subset of the newsletters that can be accessed with as little effort as a search engine query.
- Towns and Municipalities: Many local governments have accumulated microfilm and microfiche due to the ubiquity of the medium throughout past years. We assisted in digitizing multiple rolls of microfilm from a town government in Rockland County, bringing that data into a more usable and manageable format.
