Specialists in digitisation of rare, precious and priceless archives

SDS Heritage specialise in digitally converting publications, reports, minutes, journals, photographs, historic books, and general archives of associations, institutions, organisations, clubs and individual establishments (both private and commercial) on to CD-ROM, DVD and the Internet...

We are experts in scanning and archiving, and are the UK leading private company in this field. As a result of successfully scanning and converting various journals and historical archives, it was decided in 2001 to create this specialist division of the SDS Group, whose task is to deal solely with the secure digital conversion of heritage archives. SDS Heritage can scan any document archive that is between one and 900 years old.

We are very experienced in scanning fragile and rare publications through work with the Petrie Museum of Ancient Egyptian Archaeology, the London Geological Society (its Murchison Notebooks), and in scanning property deeds for the John Lewis Partnership and British Gas that date back to the 16th Century. Our experience extends further, and covers material as diverse as local and central government (including prisons and hospitals) and famous, historical and political individuals.
