We use NextScan microfiche scanners to digitize microfiche. These microfiche machines are high-production, high-quality scanners. These are not inexpensive microfiche scanners. Because they are much faster than a microfiche scanner you may see at a library or clerk’s office, we can offer low costs at the image or microfiche card level, when compared to you actually going out and buying a microfiche scanner.

We have created a quality insurance production workflow specially for microfiche scanning. Our production, management, and customer service team have years of experience focused solely in the microfiche scanning industry.
Microfiche Indexing Services
Once the microfiche imaging is complete, we have optional microfiche services for you to consider, depending on your needs (not our needs). We can index the scanned images by keying the title bars or matching to an existing database. We can also OCR the images to generate text searchable PDF files.
