Digital Document Preservation Services

Preserving the Past and Present for the Future

The document preservation services provided by Anderson Archival can mean the difference between physical documents destroyed by time and natural disaster and a beautiful digital collection presented to your organization, or even the world.

The process of digital preservation involves the careful scanning of originals, image cleanup of scans, expert “reading” through OCR of that text, and presentation with our proprietary database software or another method completely catered to your needs.

But what can Anderson Archival preserve? The options are nearly endless—we are experts in providing solutions to archival problems—and we can’t wait to hear about your collection and tailor a digital preservation solution for you.
