Do your organization’s historical books or records need digitizing? Could you benefit from a searchable database of digitized documents?
Scanning then, digitally cleaning and watermarking those scans begins the digital preservation process. Once complete, optical character recognition (OCR) and detailed quality assurance can be performed. These steps create electronic libraries that will protect your documents for perpetuity.
The following post details the steps necessary to create a digital library from your original materials. At Anderson Archival, we tailor this process and every detail to the client and the collection.
Create Your Searchable Database
Historical photographs and drawings are valuable to current and future generations. To preserve them digitally, scan these color and black-and-white images to retain the best quality possible.
Have mold or water marred your documents, or has someone written on the pages? After scanning them, digitizing teams can clean most pages to produce a readable document.
