El Paso, Texas Microfilm Conversion & Microfiche Scanning Service

Standard microfiche conversion and microfilm scanning services that frame and index individual images on microfiche often require manual scan operator review to avoid frame errors and lost images. This required labor often makes a standard microfiche scanning service cost-prohibitive for infrequently accessed records on microfiche.

Digital ReeL is a unique microfiche scanning service that is affordable for infrequently accessed microfiche records. Instead of manually extracting individual images on a microfiche, we scan the entire microfiche and what you end up with is a digital microfiche replica. We include an easy-to-use web viewer that enables easy online PDF or TIFF record retrieval.

Take a look at our “Frequently Asked Questions” page to see some common questions we receive, and the solutions we provide. Not sure what kind of microform (microfilm, microfiche, aperture cards, etc.) you have? Take a look at our “What Kind of Microfilm Do I Have?” page to find out. Do your records contain sensitive/confidential information? Our “Security” page gives you an overview of how your records will be handled, which should give you some peace of mind.
