DIGITIZE HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHS
As the owner of historical photographs, you might have a small and private collection with importance to only a limited number of people, such as family and extended family, and which includes framed portraits, old hand-tinted images, and so on. On the other hand, you might have an enormous archive of relevant and important images, negatives, slides, and other graphics and you might worry about the best ways of preserving them while still making them accessible. The good news is that digitizing historical photographs is a viable approach for both scenarios.
As it sounds, digitizing historical photographs service means scanning them, turning them into any number of digital formats (JPG, BMP, and so on) and then storing them on some preferred system. You might wish to use cloud storage to make the files readily accessible to all, but you may also find some sort of secure media more...

Are you in the market for a bulk document scanning service? Do you need numerous pages scanned and converted into digital text? If so, keep reading as we discuss how to decide on a company to do this for you.
The first thing to think about before hiring a company to handle your scanning needs is the type of quality you demand.
Of course, you want the highest quality possible, but this is also going to come with a higher price.
In this way, you also need to think about your budget before jumping into a project. If you absolutely need high-resolution text, then pay for it. Otherwise, go with a service that will offer you some more affordable options.

The meeting is over, and you are sitting at your desk, staring at a handout you received from a co-worker or supervisor.
The question that confronts you is, “should I save this?”
Why do we need to digitize Paper documents?
Perhaps you’ll need it for other meetings or assignments. Perhaps you’ll remember it at some future point and wonder what became of it.
Perhaps you’re wasting too much time worrying about what to do with it, and it should be dumped in the trash immediately.
At the back of your mind is the problematic old business proverb: “Only handle a piece of paper once.”
The importance of those questions recedes in importance if you have a dependable, easily accessible, reliably indexed method of digitizing your paper documents.
You don’t have to worry about keeping any piece of paper that you’ve stored in the cloud or on your hard drive and that...

Electronic Records Management (ERM) ensures your organization has the records it needs when they are needed.Records management is primarily concerned with the evidence of an organization’s activities, and is usually applied according to the value of the records rather than their physical format.
History of Record Retention & Document Scanning
What a relief it must’ve been for office workers in Manz, Germany, in 1450 when Johannes Gutenberg finally built a commercially viable printing press. Until then, scribes who copied books and important documents checked their work by counting the number of letters on a page, which had to match exactly the number of letters on the page from which they were copying.
After the invention of Gutenberg’s press, the number of books, pamphlets, and written documents skyrocketed. It’s estimated that, prior to the invention of the press, all the books in the world could have easily fit inside a...

Paper piles up. It takes up space. It is heavy and has to have ideal storage conditions. Even when they are in the form of books, searching through pages of paper is a cumbersome, frustrating task. There are long-term difficulties associated with storing paper as well.
For instance, paper is flammable. Many family records were lost during the Civil War because courthouses, which kept important records in books made of paper, were burned. Paper is also subject to destruction by water and mold.
Consider the idea of looking up the answer to a question you might have, for instance—”when was paper first use for writing”—in a 1990s library (full of books, but no Internet).
How long would that take? How would you go about it?
Now, consider going online and typing that same question into an Internet search engine.
How long would it take to get an answer?
Clearly, storing documents, records, and information in...

Did you ever look up a news article in a 50-year-old newspaper to read what it said? Chances are you didn’t actually hold the paper in your hands. It would’ve have been far too fragile for that.
Instead, a librarian took you to a microfiche or microfilm reader, placed a card or roll of film into a reader, and showed you how to find the date, the section, and the article you were seeking.
This all happened because, 50 years ago, it was someone’s job to take photos of that newspaper and turn it into microfilm. The precarious nature of paper, which is so easily degraded and destroyed, necessitated that archivists find a better way of keeping permanent records.
The problem has become that microfilm isn’t eternal either. Microfilm is reported to have a life expectancy of 500 years. For it to achieve that noble length of useful life, it must be kept in a relatively pristine state, with no internal contaminants.
It also has to be...

You know that box of pictures on the top shelf in the back of the closet, that one that has the old prints on the top, and on the bottom are the sleeves of negatives? Or perhaps you have a tub in the attic with boxes of color slides from trips and reunions and events?
Today, of course, we are digital people, and, when we take photos, they often get uploaded immediately to cloud storage from which we then select the precious ones for social media.
Still, there are those old negatives and slides hidden away. We know they are precious bits of history, unrepeatable moments of past times. We can convert slides to digital so they could be easily viewed and stored for posterity. This is probably a good time to launch into that project.
