Digital Preservation Services

Preserving the stories of clubs, societies and organisations by protecting materials of historical significance.

Make content accessible and discoverable to an audience who care.

We support you with the preservation of important content by publishing it online for your loyal fans to enjoy. With a focus on accessibility and discoverability, materials of interest can be shared for years to come without posing a risk to the original copies. Our goal, like yours, is to provide your audience with continued access to collections that will forever tell a story.

Ideal for:

  • Searching large archives
  • Accessing items of interest online
  • Preserving damage-prone items
  • Maintaining a record of history
  • Promoting important stories

/ The Benefits

Create a dedicated digital space

All online repositories are bespoke, so the space can be tailored to host a range of materials in a way that is not only coherent but engaging too.

Search content quickly

Using clever metadata techniques to tag and categorise content allows for speedy search functionality within large collections and archives.

Customise what you need

This service is completely flexible with the option to host the content using an existing preferred platform or Microform’s fully customisable online platform.

Provide long-term access

Publishing content online gives fans, members and supporters from across the world access to meaningful content for as long as they want it.

Preserve and promote for less

Creating what is fondly thought of as a digital museum is a cost-effective and sustainable way of displaying items of interest without the need for physical displays.
