    How to convert Microfiche to CD

    This is for all the techie gurus out there. My little town here has put out newspapers since the later 1800s. There is a copy of every single paper put out since the first one at our little library on microfiche. I would like to take the microfiche and convert them to some sort of digital format and get them to CD or hard drive. Has anyone out there had any experience with this? What sort of equipment would be needed and what would the best format be to save them in. I just know that microfiche is similar to vhs tapes in that it will deteriorate over time and I would like to preserve the papers.

    Thanks in advance.

    It is amazing how much some people can do with so little, however, what is even more amazing to me is how little some people can do with so much.

    I know there are several companies that specialize in this sort of thing. here's one that popped up on a search: http://www.getimaging.com/services27.htm
