Service description

Microfilming services

We provide libraries with microfilm copies of newspapers.The National Library of Finland microfilms all newspapers published in Finland.

Microfilming of the customer's own materials will be priced separately based on the original materials to be microfilmed on the basis of the current service price list.

It is also possible to combine the advantages of microfilming and digitisation and produce a microfilm during the digitisation process (Computer output microfilm) for long-term storage while the digitised format will remain available for digital distribution.

In proper conditions, microfilms will be retained at least for 500 years.The film can be used in digitisation.
