If you have microfilm from 1977 and before, World Archives will:

  • Ship your 35 mm silver microfilm of the newspaper content to the World Archive production facility in San Diego (complete with $100,000 insurance per delivery) and return it to you free of charge.
  • Digitize your film collection in 400 dpi grayscale PDF images free of charge to produce a digital archive of your microfilm.   ◦Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is included in the free digitization, making the content fully searchable by dates and key words.
  • Add the digitized content to a branded site created for you at no charge, as well as and make it available for other commercial sites.
  • Provide you with a copy of the images (non-searchable). ◦You would only pay for the hard drive (or other medium) to store the images, and those images will be yours for free forever.
