Index Cards

Index Cards

TownsWeb Archiving’s digitisation technicians are experts in heritage scanning and have a wealth of experience in index card scanning and fragile scanning.

In the case of index cards, our team can capture both the front and back of each card ensuring no information is lost. We can also use OCR to make the cards keyword searchable or, if handwritten, our specialist transcription service can pull key fields. This will assist in searching the collection once digitised.

Digitisation protects your material from loss or damage and makes it quickly accessible. We can create output formats in TIFF, JPEG (JPEG2000), PDF (PDFA), or any other industry-standard format you may require.

Digitisation Frequently Asked Questions

We use a combination of high-resolution planetary scanners, self-compensating book cradles and flat surface boards to support delicate items throughout the digitisation process. We also have a range of high-resolution cameras offering non-contact capture of precious, old and fragile material.

All files are captured by our highly trained digitisation technicians using overhead, daylight balanced, non-heat producing lighting before undergoing a formal quality assurance checking procedure. The final step in the process is the delivery of your electronic files by hard drive.
