Good news for historians and genealogists. The Ridgefield Library has acquired a new ST ViewScan III microfilm scanner to provide improved access to The Ridgefield Press from 1875 to 2003 as well as other microform content needed for research and genealogy. The high-resolution camera allows users to see details more clearly and to digitally zoom in and out. Microfilm content will be scanned into a digital format of your choice such as PDF, JPEG, TIFF, or PNG. You can crop an article, section or entire page and then enhance and adjust the content further for the best possible quality.
The resulting files can be emailed quickly and easily or printed in the library, saved to a USB flash drive, or distributed to Google Drive, Dropbox or FamilySearch.
