Reformatting Vendors

The digitization process can be labor-intensive and costly, requiring a substantial investment in handling and processing original materials and their surrogate images. If your organization does not have the staff, equipment or space to do its own digitization, there are services that will do it for you. If you choose to work with a scanning vendor, image specifications should be stated clearly in the contract and sample images (at varying resolutions) should be requested of the vendor prior to the start of the project.

Northern Micrographics

Northern Micrographics offers a full range of imaging products and services. They scan bound and disbound materials such as city directories, yearbooks, atlases and other books as well as newspapers, photos, negatives and microfilm and fiche.

They work with customers on indexing, file directory structure development as well as metadata development. With more than 50 years of microfilming experience, they can provide you with quality microform products.
