Historical societies maintain a local history and people by taking care of documents and other media. Without historical societies, we would not have half the knowledge we do about the past. History is told through old bookkeeping records, family photos, and travel logs. The little documents that keep our daily lives intact are all that will be left of us in the years to come. Micro Records understands the importance of taking care of our local communities, including our local histories.
Large Format Scanning
Paper has been around for centuries, meaning it comes in various shapes and sizes. Our technologies can handle large and fragile documents with care. Large format documents from the past may be like large ledgers or blueprints. Whatever the material, these records will be safely digitized for your digital records.
Older Media Document Conversions
As technology has progressed, people have created new ways to store media. Aperture cards and microfilm are excellent examples. Revolutionary in their time, these methods of record-keeping enabled libraries or historical societies to use less storage space. They also allowed people to peruse records without touching the primary documents themselves. Since 1964, Micro Records has used every innovation in record-keeping. We have the technology to convert any document storage type you have into digital files without sacrificing the original document storage. We can convert aperture cards and microfilm into digital files you will be able to access immediately.
Accessible Educational Sources
As a historical society, you are astutely aware of these primary documents’ importance to education. With digital records, your society can make your documents available for all people to see. Our digital files are created without harming any documents and will be stored in an online document storage program. Online document storage allows you to tag documents with search words. Some examples of possible tags for a historical society are: “tax documents,” “birth certificate,” or “Great Depression.” There are a thousand ways to categorize your library of media. With an online document management system, you can use all possible tags or details instead of categorizing them by only one thing.
