Prevent Microfilm damage through BSC’s microfilm and microfiche scanning services. Microfilm requires a specific storage method to ensure and preserve its safety. Improper storage conditions can lead to a variety of issues, ultimately causing microfilm to become illegible. Not only can improper storage cause long lasting damage to occur, but also unexpected weather and similar incidents can be a huge threat to your stored microfilm as well.

Natural disasters and other weather events such as, floods, tornados, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, and more, can severly damage your stored microfilm. The only way to ensure the safety of this microfilm is to have it scanned and digitized.
