The information found on old documents forms an integral part of history, whether those documents record the background of a university or give vital information about people’s ancestors in a county. Preserving that information should be a top priority.
Archive Scanning To Preserve Historical Documents
ILM helps numerous organizations preserve historical documents in their collections through top quality archive scanning services. In our process, each document is handled with the care it needs to remain in perfect condition.
Scanning these documents not only keeps them preserved in digital format, but makes them fully searchable when coupled with our indexing and data entry services. The result is easily accessible history.
Importance Of Digitizing Historical Archives
Historical documents are valuable, fragile, and irreplaceable. As much as any organization may try to keep its historical archives and repositories safe and secure, there is always a risk that those archives could be damaged or destroyed.
Keep your legacy alive
Courthouse fires are a well-known plague on historical vital records, often frustrating genealogists and other historians. Universities, schools, and historical associations all rely on their archives to preserve their legacy, but that legacy can easily be lost to a single fire, flood, or other event.
Make documents easily accessible
By scanning documents into electronic format, you can make your history digitally available to your community with web-based storage.
