Liz, I believe I was the person with the original archival filming
question, so I would be very interested in hearing more about this.  I
did get some useful info. from a fellow serialst-er regarding the title:
Preservation microfilming : a guide for librarians and archivists.  It
includes, in an appendix, information about companies that claim to do
preservation microfilming.  Addresses, phone numbers, etc.  Granted, the
title is from 1996, but some of the information may still be current.
are currently looking into some of these resources.

Good luck on your project(s) and keep me posted!

You could try Heritage Films of Cedar Repids Iowa.

They flim newspapers for small or local papers and see them the

Also, I would try a records management company like Lason.  I know
several libraries which have used them to film newspapers.
