Derby City Council

“We recently purchased three SL1000 machines and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone considering upgrading their microfilm/fiche readers. The training and after-sales support provided by Covergold has been excellent. Obtaining digital copies from microfilm is now so easy, and the image quality is fantastic. They are quiet, unobtrusive, very nicely put together and take up very little space. These machines finally bring the experience of viewing and copying microfilm into the 21st century.”

Victoria & Albert Museum

"The introduction of book scanners has been one of our most popular service developments with our users."

University Of Warwick

The Modern Records Centre at Warwick is extremely pleased with the fantastic Bookeye 4 scanner. We have been using it for over a year now and have had excellent results with large volumes and ‘awkward’ documents.  It produces high quality professional images at speed – we are fans!
