   What Do Grant’s Client’s Have to Say?

Becky BakerLibrary Director Seward Memorial Library Seward, Nebraska

“Seward and Seward County Nebraska both turn 150 years old in 2017, so the Seward Memorial Library undertook a Sesquicentennial project to film and digitize all county papers, a monumental project for a library our size that totaled over $30,000! Thanks to the fantastic service provided by Advantage Preservation, we are already close to achieving our goal. e to individuals and groups who are interested in donating to preserving our local history and it is just fun to browse old local newspapers. Thank you for all you do to make us look good! ”

Dawn ThistleSpecial Collections Librarian, Gardiner Public Library, Gardiner ME

“This seems like great news all around (and I’m selfishly excited about all those Iowa papers!!!) Congratulations and thanks for keeping us in the loop. So happy we went with Advantage!!”

Becky BakerLibrary Director Seward Memorial Library Seward, Nebraska

“You’ve given us wonderful fund-raising ideas but even more importantly, you’ve provide a fantastic product that folks in Seward rave about. Being able to search our newspaper archives from home has generated so many compliments, especially in this year of historical significance, that I’m sorry we didn’t undertake this project years ago! It is easy to demonstrate its value to individuals and groups who are interested in donating to preserving our local history and it is just fun to browse old local newspapers. Thank you for all you do to make us look good!”

We work with libraries, state and local historical societies, newspaper publishers, genealogical societies, museums, and other institutions that value history as much as we do. Our model is to focus on partnerships that bring together the rights holder, the the libraries, and the schools and provide a means to involve other like minded individuals in their community to preserve and provide access to their local history

Our experienced preservationists take pride in the care applied to preparing, inspecting and filming newspapers that can range from a few months old to papers from 2 centuries ago, and everything in between. In addition to 35mm archival microfilming services, we also  provide microfilm scanning, microfilm processing & duplication, microfiche scanning, as well as a custom online search platform for the hosting of digitized newspaper archives.
