Quotables: 5 Steps for Organizing Your Paperless Office (Young Upstarts)

Principal Farica Chang’s guest blog for Young Upstarts stresses the importance of planning and security when moving to a paperless office—or starting an archival project.

Some questions to help direct your planning stage are the following:

What exactly do you want to digitize? Which physical copies will be shredded and what will be preserved? What do you want the digital folder hierarchy to look like? Are you going to scan in-house or outsource the job?

Do you have a historical document collection that you’d like to make more accessible, relevant, and impactful? Anderson Archival uses proprietary methods to digitize collections so they are easily searchable, ultimately accessible, and even more meaningful to a wide audience.
