  • "Finally replaced all the old Canon microfilm readers with ViewScan digital desktop microfilm scanners in the National Library reading rooms. The image quality is way better, virtually no maintenance and they are quiet. It was technically challenging having the ability for the public to use USB sticks while not compromising the security of the Library's network. Manufacturers take note! The staff and researchers are now enjoying the new technology."

  • "I confidently recommend the highly professional and exacting standards of the friendly imaging team at N.Z. Micrographic Service who perfectly represented my work and have the record safely stored for future use."

  • "Micrographics were fantastic to deal with, taking an interest in my project and becoming an important part of the production team. I found them very service focussed, flexible, prompt and clear communicators, and really good at what they do. The success of my project critically depended on image quality and I was delighted with what Micrographics produced. But don't take my word for it, check out a large number of their scans in"
