Back to Digital Preservation

Web Archive

Bespoke online heritage platforms built to display unique collections of information and memorabilia.

Present history in a digital format.

If your society, club or organisation owns collections of materials that are critical to its history and story, it’s important that such items remain preserved yet accessible to its members and supporters. By placing materials such as programmes, magazines and photographs on an online repository – or an online heritage platform as we like to call it – everyone involved benefits from protected access for years to come while the original materials can be safely stored away. You tell us how you would like your archive of images presenting online, and we’ll make it a reality.

Ideal for:

  • Displaying important collections
  • Accessing items of interest
  • Digital archiving
  • Preserving original materials
  • Telling a story
  • Protecting moments in time

/ The Benefits

Create a dedicated digital space

All online platforms 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 your own 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 essentially a digital museum is a cost-effective and sustainable way of displaying items of interest without the need for physical displays.
