The Future of Micrographics is Uncertain

Posted by MESHDS on Jun 26, 2013 4:00:59 PM

For years, micrographics were the system of choice for many businesses that needed to store important records in a physical archive. These days, it’s increasingly rare that you need an actual hard copy of records. Storing these records can be a hassle, and since most offices now operate on a computer-based system, it just makes sense to have your records stored in digital format.

A bigger (and more timely) issue is that the future of micrographics is a bit in flux at the moment, as changes in the industry causes supplies to become harder to find and more expensive to buy. These challenges are likely to only increase as the trend toward digital becomes more prevalent among industries that previously favored microfilm.
