Don’t let old technology get in the way of keeping your data current and usable. Let us convert it with our Microfilm and Microfiche Scanning Service.

At Calgary Archives, our microfilm/microfiche scanner uses superior camera technology to produce sharp scanned images with excellent edge definition. Its use of fibre optics for its light source eliminates hot spots and uneven edges produced by most microfilm/microfiche scanners.

By converting your data to an electronic format, our process allows for immediate document retrieval by authorized users from their local desktop, or anywhere in the world, via the internet.

  • Digital conversion of microfilm/microfiche eliminates the intensive manual nature of film retrieval, and can reduce retrieval times to mere seconds.
