Fragile Books & Documents

At Micro Image, we’ve been scanning fragile documents and books for over 40 years, so you know your history is in safe hands. Our specialised digitisation techniques combine correct handling with dedicated scanning equipment to keep your rare and precious volumes in original condition. Part of this process means ensuring information is accurately and properly captured the first time, so there is no more handling than necessary.

Whether your documentation is torn, faded, illegible or fragile, digital preservation by Micro Image means you can examine and share your documentation now and far into the future. A high resolution digital image of your document or text can also allow you to see information more clearly. We’ve assisted in digitisation projects for the National Archives of Australia, local, state and federal governments, libraries, museums, universities, schools and businesses.
