Younger people who have grown up with computers do not understand how time-consuming it is to search microfilm, microfiche, or aperture cards. But for clerks in county courthouses, libraries, or other offices who have one of these older mediums they spend two, three, or even four hours a day searching those older mediums they need for reports. Scanning your information can save time and money is an incredible understatement.
Students who are looking for historical information may have to use library microfilm or microfiche to find that information. It can take hours to find it. The microfilm or microfiche may become brittle and torn making it hard to get it into the reader. There may be sections that have several words missing because of damage.
If you spend hours a day looking for information on microfiche, microfilm, or aperture cards then it is time to consider scanning that information into digital form. The digital form can save you hours a day allowing you to be more productive.
Digital form for your information provides several benefits. Those benefits include:
- Easily accessed information
- Saves time
- Digital will last much longer than microfiche or microfilm
- No need to worry about the only copy being lost to fire or flood as the digitized copy will be on the cloud
- Saves storage space the digitized form can be stored on the cloud, and you don’t need big bulky readers to see the material
Those are just some of the benefits of scanning your microfilm, microfiche, or aperture cards.
