Success Stories From Our Clients

At UK Archiving our goal is to provide preservation services that you can rely on again and again. We pride ourselves on our reliable, consistent, and trustworthy work, and have been honoured to collaborate with incredibly esteemed clients across the UK. Below are a selection of testimonials from clients we have and continue to work with to preserve heritage to the highest standards.

  • Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh

    "UK Archiving have digitised over a dozen collections for us – ranging from illustrations to letters, volumes of casenotes and photographs. We were very happy with the quality of the images, both for preservation and sharing online, and we always go back to UKArchiving for all our digitisation needs.”

    Daisy Cunynghame Heritage Manager & Librarian
  • The Weiner Holocaust Library

    “UK Archiving has been an invaluable partner in implementing our Digital Transformation Project. They have created for us digital images to a consistently high standard, while being very responsive to our requests and the specific demands of the material [...] We would happily work with them again and expect to do so on our future digitisation projects.”

    Dr. Christopher Gilley Digital Asset Manager
  • Glasgow School of Art

    “The Glasgow School of Art’s Archives and Collections have been engaging the services of UK Archiving for over a decade. Between 2019-2022 we engaged UK Archiving to work on a particularly large-scale project [...] The scale and complexity of the project was challenging but communication was, as always, very good throughout the project, and transfer of materials went smoothly. As a result, thousands of images have been added to our online catalogue to help enhance descriptions.”

    Michelle Kaye Collections Lead
  • Cengage Learning

    “The UK Archiving team has been one of our preferred vendors for many years working as our sole provider for film mastering and duplication.  They have grown to become one of our most reliable international digitization vendors during this time as well, which illustrates their range and functionality across all services. [...] It is always a pleasure working with the team because we know they come from industry knowledge and well equipped to handle all requests.”

  • Shetland Library - UK Archiving’s First Customer in 1994

    “As Chief Librarian of Shetland Library I became extremely concerned about the issues of our two local newspapers [...] so after careful consideration and reviewing company cost but more importantly reputation I opted to have the newspapers microfilmed by UK Archiving [...] All in all, an excellent job not only conserving the text of the papers but meaning the originals could be safely stored and the microfilm used thereafter day and daily.” 

    John Hunter BA, MCLIP Chief Librarian (Retired)
