Digitizing historical archives

Digital preservation in historical archives

  • Their fonds are wide. They cover from acts and legal text to maps or any other deposit.
  • Classification is very complex.
  • The masters are very valuable and are accessed to get high quality copies, legal validation or create derivative works.
  • In some cases, they are digitised on demand, depending on the need to reproduce the object. Due to this, keeping coherence in formats and processes is more complex.
  • They are stored on DVD and offline disks. These media are difficult to document and to link to an online catalogue.
