    Digital Archiving

    We are contempating digitaly archiving papers and articles currently stored in our library, I was just wondering if anyone has any experience of doing the same and had any advice, as we know nothing!

    better photocopiers can scan straight into pdf files and send them to a network location, or email them. I imagine turning the whole lot into pdf would be easiest.

    not sure what kind of software u might use for presenting the archive, maybe some kind of webbased thing. wonder if there's anything existing for this kind of thing.

    Something like alfresco maybe, trouble with just scanning them on photocopier straight to network is you then also need to add them to the archive system and set the document meta data as well.

    Pdf probably best format though.
