Preservation Microfilming
Academic Microforms are specialists in understanding the preservation microfilming, digital imaging and conservation requirements of archives and libraries. We are the UK experts in the origination of top quality 35mm preservation master negatives for archives, libraries, micropublishers and academic researchers and for digitising purposes. Our microforms are suitable for archival, security, micropublishing, research and digitising purposes. They are fully titled and produced to the highest national and international standards (AIIM, ANSI, BSI, ISO, JIS, etc.). Resolution, density and image integrity are all carefully checked guaranteeing high quality images even from the most difficult originals.

Digital Preservation
We are able to produce digital images from most types of originals including microforms, 35mm slides, lantern slides, glass negatives, transparencies, prints, drawings, engravings, manuscripts and printed works and other original documents up to A3 size with output to CD-ROM, DVD and Kodak Ultima CD-R. Most file types are catered for including RGB TIFF, CCITT TIFF, JPEG, GIF and PDF formats. Images can be re-sized and translated to the file format of your choice. In addition to standard digitising we can also, if required, initiate image enhancement techniques to restore faint or faded images, de-skew, right-orientate, mirror or invert images. Using these techniques we have "restored" previously unreadable texts. We can offer advice and services in the following key areas: Scanning and Digital Photography. Database Development. System Procurement and Consultancy
