Replace Physical Microfilm and Readers with the Digital ReeL Microfilm Digitization Solution

Microfilm Digitization SolutionAnyone who handles microfilm knows how cumbersome it is to locate the right microfilm roll, mount it to a legacy reader and find the document. For organizations that present public-facing access, staff time can be consumed trying to help patrons, citizens and customers fumble through the physical archive. However, for many organizations, the expense of microfilm digitization has been too high.

Not anymore. Unlike any other microfilm digitization solution, Digital ReeL offers an affordable, practical option that is no more expensive than making a microfilm or microfiche duplicate.

Microfilm Digitization Case Study: Lancaster County (Lincoln) Nebraska

Microfilm Digitization Case StudyScott Gaines, Chief Deputy, Lancaster County Nebraska, states “Digital ReeL was by far the most affordable solution we looked at to bring this legacy microfilm archive into the digital age. Researchers can search for all records from our existing system and if the record is older than 1987, they are presented with instructions on how to find the information in Digital ReeL. All of this is completed from a computer, removing any physical microfilm from the retrieval process.”
